Just Ask! by Sonia Sotomayor

Cover of Just Ask book

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor and award-winning artist Raphael Lopez teamed up to create Just Ask!, a book about embracing the differences in others. Justice Sotomayor uses her experience being diagnosed with diabetes as a child to write about all kinds of challenges some kids face, and highlights the special powers those kiddos have, too! Children are taught that each unique quality is what makes our world vibrant, and that learning about each other through kindness and curiosity is the foundation for inclusion.

Cafe La Llave Premium Blend Espresso

Two bags of Cafe La Llave coffee beans

Cafe La Llave’s story began 143 years ago when brothers Jose Maria and Ramon Gavina arrived in southern Cuba, where its coffee-bearing mountains became their home. They soon became well-known and well-loved by the community, and during the Cuban revolution, descendant Francisco Gavina and his family settled in Los Angeles. They’ve continued to create traditional Latin coffee using four generations of experience (which explains the almost 1,800 five-star Amazon reviews!).
