In the simplest terms, Just Ask is a story about inclusion. Children are different, just like a garden where “thousands of plants bloom together, but every flower, every berry, and every leaf is different”. More so, it is about how children of unique disabilities are different too. And it is ok to be curious and to simply ask in order for us to learn and grow.
Told in first person point of view through the character Sonia, Just Ask tells of Sonia and her friends planting a garden. Sonia and her friends share with the reader their unique disabilities. While this is a serious topic, the author uses very simple, relatable words to convey the message to children. The books strikes a very optimistic, warm and uplifting tone and the pages are filled with beautiful illustrations.
