GIVEAWAY: Dream Big, Little Pig! by Kristi Yamaguchi

I remember watching Kristi Yamaguchi win gold at the 1992 Winter Olympics for women's figure skating. She was simply stunning out on the ice. All of her dreams were coming true in the last seconds of her final program, but you could see in her eyes that she was a girl who was determined to make all of her dreams a reality.

Kristi's dreams didn't stop at the Olympics. She went on to have a successful career touring with Stars on Ice. She was started the Always Dream Foundation in 1996. In 2003, her TV special, Friends and Family aired on NBC and ran has run annually for four years. Most of you might remember that she won ACB's Dancing With the Stars in 2008. On top of all this she is happily married with two daughters. Now, she is embarking on a career as a children's picture book author with the debut of Dream Big, Little Pig!

I received a copy a few weeks ago of Dream Big, Little Pig! and every night since Princess D has asked that I read it to her! Like the character Poppy, my daughter has her own big dreams of becoming a teacher, or a chef, or an actress. I encourage her to dream big and have always said that hard work and determination will help her make her dreams become reality. This book reminded me that it is important to have fun while working hard on making your dreams come true! It is the "fun" that gets you through the stumbles and falls.
