Sofia Valdez, Future Prez

The newest picture book from the creators of Iggy Peck, ArchitectRosie Revere, Engineer; and Ada Twist, Scientist stars Sofia Valdez, a community leader who stands up for what she believes in!

Sofia Valdez, Future Prez by Andrea Beaty & David Roberts (11/05/19)
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 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.

“I began thinking about a story that would show children that they have some power, and that they can find the strength to focus on one thing they can do to make a change. To me, Sofia Valdez is a story about bravery and community, emphasizing that everybody has a role to play.”
