Positive pig power April 15 2012
By Jessica at Cracking the Cover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As with "Dream Big, Little Pig!" "It's a Big World, Little Pig!" is an upbeat book about positive pig power. Instead of the competition of the World Games, Kristi focuses on friendship and facing fears. There's nothing about winning or losing, just performing to the best of your ability, which is a fine lesson for young children.

Most of all, "It's a Big World, Little Pig!" is a fun read. The illustrations are bright and bold, and all of the characters have great personality.

Totally Cute! March 21 2012
By Gimme The Scoop - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Awww I just jumped at the chance to read this one not only because of the beautiful illustrations but because I am a sucker for Little Piggies! I know! I know! I am strange but I been collecting figurines and items with little piggies for ages.

With my confession made this story was really adorable with Little Pig venturing off to a new country to compete in the ice skating competitions. She was very excited and scared all at once but she had big dreams and didn't let her fear hold her back.

The underlying meaning I got from the story was to follow your dreams and don't let fear hold you back!

dreaming big and making friends! March 13 2012
By little island studios - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I just got this...absolutely love it! It's so hard sometimes for kids (and adults) to make friends, especially going to a new place or country. Poppy gets an amazing opportunity to follow her dreams and it takes her to Paris! being a little unsure if she would make any friends...she quickly meets some new girls and discovers not how different everyone is...but how much they have in common.

The thing I like most about this book is the author, Kristi Yamaguchi, does not focus on winning (they actually never tell you who won); but focuses on family being proud of her for following her dreams (whatever that may be), and the whole experience of the adventure! Whether you like ice skating or not...girl or boy, no matter what nationality...we all smile in the same language.

"It's a big world, little pig, but remember that everyone smiles in the same language!" - Poppy's friend, Emma.

I very much enjoyed this book, perfect for girl or boy, 2 and up.

I received this book from the publisher and no other compensation was given, opinions (good or bad) are my own.
Hammy sequel Oct. 22 2014
By Smoke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Sequel to "Dream Big, Little Pig" follows self-absorbed figure skating pig to Paris for figure skating championships. "Author" Yamaguchi again fails to realize the inadvertant metaphor in the character of the *pig.* Also fails to make use of the many obvious roman-a-clef possibilities, although the two head-butting goats are clearly meant to represent Boitano and Orser.
