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. This book explores the different abilities kids, and people of all ages, have. Using her own experience as a child who was diagnosed with diabetes, Supreme Court Justice Sonia 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.
