Dream Big Little Pig by Kristi Yamaguchi

Poppy may be just a pig, but she has big dreams. From ballet to modeling, she tries it all. But she's not good at any of it. With supportive family and friend, Poppy doesn't give up. She just looks for something else. Could ice skating be her thing?

What I thought: A beautiful book with a great message. Poppy is an endearing character. I like her determination and spunk. The support she receives from her family and best friend Emma is great. I was pleased when Poppy finally found her niche. The illustrations are lovely--bright and colorful with good use of white space. My favorites are Poppy dancing, Poppy singing, Poppy being a model, and Poppy asking to fly.
