    Continuing my series on strange things you learn from children's booksWhen I was a kid I was OBSESSED with figure skating I saw a show once with Nancy Kerrigan and Oksana Biul when the skaters came to town and I was hooked So when I saw that Kristi Yamaguchi had written a children's book I HAD to give it a chance Surely there would be some strange things I could learn from this book right?So the main character is a little pig and everyone tells her to dream big Hence the title no? What are the credentials reuired to write a children's book by the way? None I'm guessing? So the pig tries to be a singer and a supermodel and a variety of other things but she's klutzy and seems to really fail at it In the tradition of filling children's minds with unrealistic fluff everyone tells her to keep dreaming big and she will surely achieve her dreams Even if they are outlandishFinally little pig decides she wants to be a figure skater She decides to actually practice at something rather than just whining and all of her dreams come true She's a famous spectacular skater and all is right with the worldBecause that's the rule and not the exception right? Children take noteSo in the end we are to praise this pig for her persistence says Kristi Y I mean nevermind the fact that the pig whined and gave up on fifty bazillion other things before deciding to actually try at something How is that persistence?More strange things you learn from children's books I guess At least the illustrations were pretty

    Poppy is a big with big dreams Dreams of becoming a ballerina When you find your true talent work hard and never give up If you've tried your best and find it's just not for you keep trying until you find what your good at and persevere Good read for children finding themselves frustrated with a sport or event they really are passionate about

    Synopsis I loved this book It is about a little pig named Poppy who found out that following her dreams is not an easy task Her family encouraged her to believe in herself and keep going She learned not to give up and that she can do anything as long as she believes in herself and has fun doing it I think it is a wonderful book for students in elementary school because kids at this age are trying all kinds of sports and new adventures Sometimes when trying new things they may not come easy for kids This book is encouraging for students to find things that they love doing I thought it went along great with my text set of accomplishing dreamspursuing goalsOpening Has anyone ever felt discouraged? Or like you just wanted give up on something? Is there anyone that is brave and wants to share their story of feeling discouraged? Allow time for students to shareWho pushed you to keep trying and keep going? Was it your family and friends? A teacher?We are going to read a book called Dream Big Little Pig by Kristi Yamaguchi By looking at the cover and the title what do we think our story is going to be about? Does anyone recognize the name of our author? Her name is Kristi Yamaguchi She was a famous ice skater who skated in the Olympics and was on Dancing with the Stars Opening Moves For my opening moves I used personal connections feeling of discouragement and brief sharing of personal experiences related to the topic drawing attention to the writer and predictions based on the title 2011 May 01 School Library Journal

    Dream Big Little Pig is a juvenile book about a young pig Poppy who the only thing she truly wishes for in the world is to be a big star She sets off on trying a multitude of things including singing dancing and modeling where they all told Poppy that she was not right for those things Poppy does not know what to do and feels like she will never make it BIG Her friends and family continue to tell her to just Dream Big Little Pig After Poppy stumbles upon an ice skating rink she realizes that she is very skilled at figure skating and so finally becomes the big star she wanted to be I chose to give this book 5 stars because not only do the illustrations include some of the different stereotypes of the professionals in those different occupations but also that it teaches those even of the younger age that feeling disappointment is normal and that it does not mean that you are never going to achieve your dream or not good at anything It takes time and patience and a willingness to try new things to see what you are good at

    This is the story of Poppy the pig who ends up in New Pork yes Pork City chasing her dreams BIG dreamsIt's probably not fair to Kristi Yamaguchi that I just read When I Grow Up by Al Yankovic whose book was filled with dozens of fun wacky and silly ideas for jobs Poppy set her sights on 1 ballerina 2 singer and 3 supermodelOK It probably doesn't help that I'm also reading Cinderella Ate My Daughter by Peggy Orenstein who does a brilliant job of showing how the princess culture limits our children especially our daughters Oh wellPoppy ends up being a great ice skater of course and eventually a pilot and a sky diver Even though Poppy's dreams seem somewhat limited ultimately the book has a positive message and I can't fault Yamaguchi for that She has two daughters of her own

  6. Kathryn Kathryn says:

    35 STARSCute enough little story about a pig who has many big dreams but lacks the talent or confidence to pursue many of them When she finally falls in love with a sport that she loves she has the determination to see it through and to learn to look past naysayers Nothing remarkably fabulous here in the writing style or illustrations but it's cute and entertaining and has a good message Yamaguchi thanks her co writer in her acknowledgement section which is nice and it's probably one of the better celebrity authored picture books out there

  7. Donalyn Donalyn says:

    As celebrity written children's books go this one is pretty cute I liked Poppy and the positive support she received from her friends and family You can see how Yamaguchi's personal experiences influenced the book

    Dream Big Little Pig reviewDream Big Little Pig is a charming and delightful children's book written by author Kristi Yamaguchi The illustrations are adorable

  9. Lara Lara says:

    Really liked the message about sticking with your dreams but Poppy was a little bit girly for me before becoming a figure skater her other choices were ballerina singer and supermodel? Still that sort of personality could easily be attracted to the grace and sparkle of figure skating Did like that she wanted to fly and sky dive as she grew up There's a some fun humor in the story too which made for a fun read as mentioned the pig learns to fly and plenty of opportunity for silly voices always a read aloud plusBesides being a bit stereotypically girly for my taste I felt Poppy's searching stage was a little long Between those two points that's why I rate this on the low side of 35 not rounded up Not a bad book though just not a favoriteRead this for an Olympics storytime The kids enjoyed it and even though it wasn't my favorite of my selections I would use it again

    Poppy wants to be a star She dreams of being a ballerina but she’s clumsy Then she dreams of being a singer but she’s always out of tune Then she sees an ice rink and even though at first she stumbles this time she doesn’t give upWritten by Olympic gold medallist Kristi this book has a clear message to never give up on your dreams and believe you can accomplish anything I think it’s important to note Poppy’s dream is being a star not a ballerina or singer or supermodel all things she gives up on fairly uickly and she does accomplish this through ice skating This would be a nice story to read to a child who is lacking in confidence – we can’t be great at everything but if you find something you enjoy then go for it and persevereSee my full review with pictures here
