Olympic gold medalist and Dancing With The Stars champion, Kristi Yamaguchi, is sending a powerful, positive message to kids – she wants them to dream big!
While signing copies of her new children’s book Dream Big, Little Pig! – which follows Poppy the Pig as she tries to become a star at ballet, singing and walking the runway – Kristi made comments and answered questions about her inspiring children’s book.
“I love to see the joy they get from reading, and from their favorite books and so I thought I would be fun to have mommy write a book for them,” Yamaguchi said.
Kristi read her book aloud following the signing and stayed to answer questions. She said she drew inspiration to write the book from her two children, Keara, 7, and Emma, 5.
So why a pig as the leading lady?
“I’m born year of the pig, so it was just a natural choice,” she said. “Miss Piggy was my favorite growing up, so I felt a connection there too.”
