Jamaica Louise James
After watching her grandmother sell tokens in the dreary subway, Jamaica notices that no one ever says "hello" to one another and comes up with a plan where she is able to make a real change through the use of colorful paints and her good spirit.
Down in the 86th Street subway station, a plaque bears the name "Jamaica Louise James, age 8." Who is Jamaica and what did she do? Sit back and enjoy because in this peppery story, Jamaica tells you all about it. With pictures as spunky as Jamaica Louise James herself, Amy Hest's inspiring tale reveals how important just one person—even someone aged eight—can be.
