Just Ask!

Sonia Sotomayor, Rafael López (Illustrator)
Feeling different, especially as a kid, can be tough. But in the same way that different types of plants and flowers make a garden more beautiful and enjoyable, different types of people make our world more vibrant and wonderful. In Just Ask, United States Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor celebrates the different abilities kids (and people of all ages) have. Using her own experience as a child who was diagnosed with diabetes, Justice Sotomayor writes about children with all sorts of challenges--and looks at the special powers those kids have as well. As the kids work together to build a community garden, asking questions of each other along the way, this book encourages readers to do the same- When we come across someone who is different from us but we're not sure why, all we have to do is Just Ask.

Kids are like a garden. Each one grows at their own pace. Some are fast, some slow. Some need special attention, while some are better on their own. Just Ask! explores all kinds of kids that grace this earth. All sorts of different kids speak on how their lives are all unique. How is each kid different? This book will answer that. The beautiful art and the inspirational wording add up to a wonderful story that will touch any reader’s heart. The composition of the book is evenly paced, with each page a different kid’s story. The multiple first person views show the true emotions from each kid. I personally love this story and would recommend it for all ages. Submitted by: Shaurya J.

A wonderful book for kids that explains that people aren't all the same, and that being different is okay.
