STEPHEN BLUE FOR TIME FOR KIDS

SONIA SOTOMAYOR is a U.S. Supreme Court justice. She has written a kids’ book called Just Ask! It is about kids who have differences that can make life challenging.

Sotomayor knows what it is like to feel different. She grew up with juvenile diabetes. She knew other kids were curious about her condition. But they did not ask her about it. “If you see someone doing something different, just ask!” Sotomayor told TFK Kid Reporter Zara Wierzbowski. “Differences are not negative things,” Sotomayor says. “They are wonderful things.”
