New York Times Bestseller!

Poppy, the adorable, persistent, dreaming-big pig, has a new adventure in store for her: the World Games ice-skating championship in Paris! Poppy is nervous about meeting so many new people in a new place. But, ever courageous and supported by her family (Emma, too!), Poppy embarks upon this exciting adventure head-on. She meets a snowboarding Panda, a Maltese who skies, and two fellow skaters, a Crane and a Kangaroo. Poppy begins to realize that although these animals look different, act different, and are from different places, they are all the same at heart. They all smile in the same language!

5.0 out of 5 stars Positive pig power April 15 2012
By Jessica at Cracking the Cover - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Cute! March 21 2012
By Gimme The Scoop - Published on Amazon.com
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars dreaming big and making friends! March 13 2012
By islandgirl - Published on Amazon.com
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.
4.0 out of 5 stars Kristi's Book Nook Jan. 22 2014
By Kristi Bernard - Published on Amazon.com
When you dream big just remember it could come true. Although it could be scary, you must follow your heart. Poppy the pig loved to ice skate. She was so good that she was invited to skate at the World Games in Paris.

“Paris was far away from Poppy's home in New Pork city. Poppy was excited to see new places, but she was scared about being so far from home.”

Once Poppy arrived she began to make new friends from all around the world. She remembered the advice of her best friend Emma. She told her, “everyone smiles in the same language!”
