NEW YORK (AP) – Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor continues her brilliant parallel career as an author with a picture book on giving to others.
“Just Help! How to Build a Better World ”will be released on January 25, Philomel Books announced on Friday. With illustrations by Angela Dominguez, “Just Help” is inspired by the community spirit of Sotomayor’s own family. According to Philomel, an imprint for Penguin Young Readers, Sotomayor’s book will guide readers through a neighborhood where everyone helps improve the world and people’s lives.
“I believe that children, with their energy, optimism and creativity, have the power to solve the many problems that we adults leave to them,” Sotomayor said in a statement. “I hope my book, with beautiful illustrations by Angela Dominguez, will encourage children to use their power to help each other and start changing their communities.”
Sotomayor’s previous works include bestsellers such as the “My Beloved World” memoir and the “Just Ask! : Be Different, Be Brave, Be You ”and“ Turning Pages: My Life Story ”.
