All she asks is that he pay it forward! Before long, Cara's kindness is passed all around...and might even make its way back home! Kristi Yamaguchi is an ice-skating Olympic gold medalist and world champion who knows how to lend a helping hand! As founder of the Always Dream Foundation, Kristi helps promote early childhood literacy. Through her newest picture book, Kristi inspires children of all ages to pay it forward!

"With a simple premise and sweet, rounded characters, Yamaguchi's book should inspire preschoolers to help their friends. Kindness is contagious, after all." - Noozhawk

"With a Pay-It-Forward-type message that even the littlest child can understand, author and Olympic medalist Kristi Yamaguchi shows kids that good begets good in this simple story. But that's not the only message here: Yamaguchi's characters also display patience and perseverance as well as inclusion, all with a gentle bit of humor inside the difficulties they encounter. Add beautifully vivid artwork from illustrator John Lee, and you've got a book that kids will love to page through as they hear the story read." - Bookworm Sez
