Learn more about how you can help your community in this companion to Just Ask! Every night when Sonia goes to bed, Mami asks her the same question: "How did you help today?" And since Sonia wants to help her community, just like her Mami does, she always makes sure she has a good answer to Mami's question. Today, she's helping assemble care packages for American soldiers, while other classmates explore recycling programs, or learn about the importance of voting as an adult.
In a story inspired by her own family's desire to help others, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor takes young readers on a journey through a neighborhood where kids and adults, activists and bus drivers, friends and strangers all help one another to build a better world for themselves and their community. With art by award-winning illustrator Angela Dominguez, this book shows how we can all help make the world a better place each and every day.
"Generosity proves contagious in this personal portrait of community service by Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor.... Digital illustrations by Dominguez (I Love You, Baby Burrito) portray the children and their actions with simplicity and clarity. An author’s letter explains why it’s crucial to understand the world as 'one very large neighborhood,' and that’s just what young Sonia and her classmates do in this inspirational volume." — Publishers Weekly
