It's a Big World Little Pig - Kristi Yamaguchi & Tim Bowers



Released March 2012

What a completely lovely children's story. The basic premise, and I'm pretty sure much of this is autobiographical, is that Poppy Pig's been invited to compete at the World Games in Paris. She's nervous, but with the support of her friends and family, she sets off on her amazing journey.

After arriving in Paris, Poppy's fear starts to get the best of her, but she remembers what her family's told her and starts making new friends with the other athletes. While she can't push away all the nerves, Poppy's determined to do her best.

It's a Big World Little Pig is simply a charming story that is beautifully illustrated by Tim Bowers. I loved the illustrations just as much as the story itself. I always found Kristi Yamaguchi's performances on ice to be amazing to watch, and I get that same warm feeling reading her novel. There's a strong message about overcoming fear that will benefit children too.

The author is donating a percentage of the book's proceeds to the Always Dream Foundation. By purchasing It's a Big World Little Pig, your child's smiles will warm your heart and you're helping out an important charity too. It's definitely a book to add to your shelves.
