    This book is so great for kids to learn how they can help their communities by dreaming big, not giving up, and following through! My daughter is only a baby now but I will continue to read this book to her so she knows how important it is to be involved and for your voice to be heard. Plus, the illustrations are gorgeous!

    This is a great book. High quality hard back with engaging pictures. The story empowers children so that they know their actions can change the world. Themes of leadership and collaboration come though. Obstacles are overcome and beaurocracy navigated. Some positive and inspiring messages. Best of all a great story!

    My class loved this book and Ada Twist Scientist by the same author. We used this book to support a goal setting lesson.

    So loved how the steps she took to effect change any child can re-create! Empowering to say the least!

    Speaking as a former teacher, I can easily visualize this as an ingenious class project. Taking careful note if each student’s goal, steps taken to reach the goal. Contact the media afterwards for well-deserved attention!!

    I was accidentally sent the Spanish version of this book and so I was unable to read it. I did end up purchasing the book again in English and I love the story line. All for the strong female character wanting and working to make a change in her community!

    This is a great addition to the series! Many of the other books are about how the students in the class plan to take on their professions based on their interest, but this takes it by emphasizing getting involved, which is a beautiful message!

  31. Amanda Littke-Kellam (verified owner)

    Such a beautiful story about how to be a brave leader and the power of community. Our three year old loves Ada Twist, and was so excited to see her make an appearance in this book, along with all of Andrea Beatty’s other characters! Such a beautifully illustrated book that you and your little will absolutely treasure.

    Beautifully illustrated and wonderfully designed book. Shows kids (and adults!) what it takes to be a strong leader. It highlights the importance of help and community. Sofia gathers her courage and maintains her willingness to make a change despite the challenges she faces–just what kids need to see and hear more of.

    This book is important for creating a diverse library in my classroom. Rosie Revere Engineer was so popular and now my students are thrilled to have Sofia Valdez Future Prez to continue the fun.

  36. LittleReader (verified owner)

    Neat book with great illustrations. It’s not quite as good as the original (Ada Twist, Scientist), but it’s a good way to show kids that they can get behind a cause and try to create change.

  37. Anne Bernard (verified owner)
