“You go, Girl!”
“Dream Big, pig!”
Poppy is a waddling, toddling pig with big dreams. She wants to be a star! But she soon discovers that’s not as easy as it sounds. It’s only when Poppy feels the magic of gliding and sliding, swirling and twirling on ice that our most persistent pig truly believes in herself: Poppy, star of the rink!
status: Read in March, 2011 — I own a copy
Oh how AppleBlossom and I love sparkily textured covers! This gorgeous purple and pink picture book had the misfortune of releasing mid-March, which is only a misfortune because we were in the middle of a move and thus I am delayed in telling you how awesome this picture book is!
Having a dream with hope and perseverance is so important and so is believing in yourself. This book has it all and I know my daughters will love it and hopefully learn from it for years to come.
*Thanks to Sourcebooks for providing a copy for review.*
