“This rhyming romp reminds readers that one young person can make a difference.” ―Kirkus Reviews
The newest picture book from the creators of Iggy Peck, Architect; Rosie Revere, Engineer; and Ada Twist, Scientist stars Sofia Valdez, a community leader who stands up for what she believes in!
Told in charming rhyme, this lovely story will both entertain and inspire:
Raking the leaves, taking pets for a walk
Or just dropping by for a treat and a talk,
Sofia Valdez did as much as she could
for her family and friends and her whole neighborhood.
Every morning, Abuelo walks Sofia to school . . . until one day when Abuelo hurts his ankle at a local landfill, and he can no longer do so. Sofia (aka Sofi) misses her Abuelo and wonders what she can do about the dangerous Mount Trashmore.
Then she gets an idea—the town can turn the slimy mess into a park! She brainstorms and plans and finally works up the courage to go to City Hall—only to be told by a clerk that she can’t build a park because she’s just a kid! Sofia is down but not out, and she sets out to prove what one kid can do.
Young readers who join Sofia in her story will learn that they can make a difference, help their community, or one day become president of the United States!
