It's been awhile since Mother 2 Mother has sponsored a blog give away, so we're going to give away a copy of Kristi Yamaguchi's adorable book, It's a Big World, Little Pig. Dream Big is the message that Kristi Yamaguchi sends in her new book. Poppy the pig is an ice skater, and has been invited to skate at the World Games ice skating championship in Paris. Poppy is nervous about heading to Paris. She lives in New York, and becomes anxious about heading to France. It's so far away. She is encouraged by her friend, Emma, who tells her to "Dream Big, Pig!" Poppy's grandparents said, "You go girl!" and her parents give her comfort by letting her know that they would be with her every step of the way.
Emma gives Poppy a good luck charm, and Poppy heads to Paris. Once she arrives at the World Athlete Village, she is nervous and bumps into a snowboarder from China named Li. Li and Poppy become friends and walk the village together to find the athlete check-in. Poppy becomes hungry and decides to head to the dining hall. The dining hall is full and she scans the room for a seat. A skier from Italy waved to Poppy and offers her a seat at her table. They too become friends.
Poppy leaves the dining hall and heads to the practice rink. There she meets another skater from Japan. They admire each other's costumes and become friends. Poppy skated from her heart during the competition and remembered all the friends and discoveries that she had made during the trip. Her parents were there to support her and decided they would stay for the remainder of the week so they could visit the Eiffel Tower, museums and eat French food. It turned out to be a beautiful trip, one that Poppy would always remember.
