Booklist - 02/01/2020 Together with her Abuelo and Pup, Sofia loves to help those in her neighborhood, but when Abuelo falls and hurts himself at the local landfill, she rallies support from her neighbors in order to turn the landfill into a park. Sofia takes her proposal to City Hall, but she struggles to find her voice, until she remembers why she is there in the first place. With support from her community and new friends, her dream for a neighborhood park comes to life. Roberts’ detailed watercolor illustrations conjure the various unique characters that are part of Sofia’s world, as well as Sofia’s ambition and desire to help those around her. Beaty keeps to the formula that has made her Questioneers series such a success, and her rhyming couplets convey both the anxiety and worries Sofia has, along with her spirit and courage. An inspiring story about how one voice can make a difference and how people can come together not just for something good but for something even better. - Copyright 2020 Booklist.
