Poppy has big dreams - lots of them! But following her dreams isn't as easy as it sounds. It's a good thing Poppy's friends and family - who love her no matter what - encourage her to keep believing in herself and making her dreams come true. Kristi Yamaguchui is an ice skating Olympic gold medalist and world champion who knows about dreaming big. The motto Always Dream serves as Kristi's personal inspiration as well as the name of her charitable foundation for children. This philosophy has contributed to Kristi's success on and off the ice, and one that she aspires to instill in the hearts of children.
"For the youngest of listeners, the themes found in The Little Engine that Could continue to inspire. Former U.S. Olympic figure-skater Yamaguchi has penned a new version, complete with American Idol flash and glamour.... A sincere thank you from Yamaguchi to her family and fans. As celebrity books go... it's a cut above many, and the prose styling is refreshingly restrained." - Kirkus Review
"Olympic figure skating champion, Dancing With the Stars winner and Bay Area resident Kristi Yamaguchi drives the point home with fun and flair...The illustrations featuring Poppy and all the animals in her world, including the impala skating instructor and a high-heeled lioness supermodel, are wonderful." - San Francisco Chronicle
"Follow Your Dreams, says author and Olympic Ice Skater Kristi Yamaguchi in a book that inspires not only children but also adults to go for the gold in every way." - Bookpleasures
"...clever language pops in this story, and Susie Berneis is an expressive narrator." - School Library Journal (Video Review)
"Listeners will enjoy the familiar theme that's reminiscent of that of The Little Engine That Could." - School Library Journal
