BookNook, the leading technology provider for small group learning in early reading, announced that world-renowned Olympic athlete, children's author, and philanthropist Kristi Yamaguchi will serve as a featured author on its platform.

“My goal with children’s books, such as 'Dream Big, Little Pig' is to support kids in dreaming big and achieving those dreams, no matter what challenges they face," said Yamaguchi. "Partnering with BookNook is a perfect way to both share that message and to help students build a love of reading and become confident readers."

Yamaguchi has published three children’s books, all of which will be featured on the BookNook platform. Through BookNook’s network of partner schools and nonprofits across the United States, Yamaguchi’s work will reach an estimated 50,000 children in the first year alone.

“We’re so excited to be working with someone of Kristi’s accomplishments,” said Michael Lombardo, Founder and CEO of BookNook. “I know our students will be inspired by her example to reach for their very best as readers.”
