Just ask!, Be different, be brave, be you., Sonia Sotomayor - (electronic bk)

Summary
A #1 New York Times bestseller! Winner of the Schneider Family Book Award! Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor and award-winning artist Rafael Lopez create a kind and caring book about the differences that make each of us unique. 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 . Praise for Just Ask : * "Addressing topics too often ignored, this picture book presents information in a direct and wonderfully child-friendly way." - Booklist , *STARRED REVIEW* "An affirmative, delightfully diverse overview of disabilities." - Kirkus Reviews "A hopeful and sunny exploration of the many things that make us unique [with] dynamic and vibrant illustrations [that] emphasize each character's unique abilities. . . . A thoughtful and empathetic story of inclusion." - SLJ
