Our August children's book pick is… Just Ask!: Be Different, Be Brave, Be You, by Sonia Sotomayor!🌻🪴🌳

This thoughtful book tells the tale of a group of children building a community garden. As the kids work together, they begin to ask questions about their differences. Through their conversations, the kids learn more about each other’s special challenges, like asthma, diabetes, dyslexia, autism, stuttering, and more. By discussing these challenges instead of ignoring them, the children start to understand and relate to their peers, realizing how much they have in common and how everyone is different and special in their own beautiful way.🌷☀️

This empathetic and empowering story about inclusion addresses topics that are too often ignored. Just as the title suggests, when we come across someone who is different from us but we're not sure why, all we have to do is just ask.💛
