Last Stop on Market Street
by Matt de la Peña; Illustrated by Christian Robinson
ISBN: 9780399257742

Synopsis: CJ and his grandma take a bus ride together, discovering the beauty and wonder of their vibrant neighborhood.

Review: There is a simple reason why Last Stop on Market Street is a multiple award winner (Caldecott Honor, Newbery Medel, and Coretta Scott King Award to name a few). It is an amazing book.

In his innocent selfishness, CJ asks his grandma the questions that we often ask ourselves. Why can’t we have the nicest things? And each time, grandma wisely shows that we already do.

Parents who are trying to instill a sense of wonder in the mundane could benefit from Grandma’s outlook and answers. Non-parents too.

Age Recommendation: 3-5
