Luci Soars
From the New York Times bestselling illustrator of Turning Pages by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor comes an emotionally resonant picture book about learning that what sets you apart is often what makes you great. Luci was born without a shadow. Mamá says no one notices. But Luci does. And sometimes others do too. Sometimes they stare, sometimes they tease Luci, and sometimes they make her cry. But when Luci learns to look at what makes her different as a strength, she realizes she has more power than she ever thought. And that her differences can even be a superpower. From three-time Pura Belpré Award honoree Lulu Delacre comes a heartfelt and uplifting story with a timeless message: what sets you apart is often what makes you great. Praise for Luci Soars: "This urban fable encourages readers to claim their space"--Kirkus Reviews *"Simple and powerful . . . a great read-aloud for educators to discuss emotions, bullying, acceptance of differences, self-esteem and empowerment." --Youth Services Book Review, starred review
