While Poppy is of course, nervous, her family and best friend will support her. Poppy even gets to meet friends from all over! Some skate like her, and some prefer other sports, but they all get along. They all look different, are from different places, and are different animals, but they all love sports and want to be friends.
Children can benefit from Poppy’s determination and willingness to try new things and go new places. Leanrning about different cultures and people is important for all kids- it will help them be better world citizens.

Poppy Pig is an adorable character that children will love to hear about as they drift off into dreamland.
