A natural follow-up to her NYT bestselling Just Ask, Justice Sonia Sotomayor's Just Help: How to Build a Better World features a variety of children helping their community in creative ways. There is no one more perfect to deliver this motivation than Justice Sotomayor, and Angela Dominguez's illustrations will keep you turning the pages for more.
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.
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.
