In Olympic gold medalist and “Dancing with the Stars” champion Kristi Yamaguchi’s second children’s picture book, “It’s a Big World, Little Pig!,” Poppy competes in the World Games ice-skating championship in Paris.
Poppy is nervous about meeting so many new people in a new place. But, ever courageous and supported by her family, she embarks upon this exciting adventure head-on.
Poppy begins to realize that although these animals look different, act different, and are from different places, they are all the same at heart. She learns that “we all smile in the same language.”
Tim Bowers illustrated both books. His other credits include “Dinosaur Pet” and “Acoustic Rooster.”
Yamaguchi will be traveling throughout the U.S. to promote her new book in March. She will donate a portion of her proceeds from book sales to benefit her Always Dream Foundation. Pre-orders are available through Amazon.
