Jamaica Louise James

author: Amy Hest
illustrator: Sheila White Samton

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.

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.
