Kamala and Maya’s Big Idea: “One day, Kamala and Maya had an idea. A big idea: They would turn their empty apartment courtyard into a playground! This is the uplifting tale of how the author’s aunt and mother first learned to persevere in the face of disappointment. They turned a dream into reality. This is a story of children’s ability to make a difference. It tells how a community came together to transform their neighborhood.”–Provided by publisher.
