U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor is releasing another book for young readers.

The new picture book is called Just Help! How to Build a Better World, the Associated Press reports.

It is set in a neighborhood where children and adults help each other to build a better world for themselves and their community, according to an online description.

The book is being released Jan. 25 by Philomel Books, an imprint for Penguin Young Readers.

“I believe that children, with their energy, optimism, and creativity, have the power to fix the many problems with which we adults are leaving them,” Sotomayor said in a statement. “I hope my book, with Angela Dominguez’s beautiful illustrations, will encourage children to use their power to help one another and begin changing their communities.”

Sotomayor previously wrote children’s books called Just Ask!: Be Different, Be Brave, Be You; Turning Pages: My Life Story; and The Beloved World of Sonia Sotomayor. She once said being a role model “is the most valuable thing I can do.”
