Last Stop on Market Street by Matt de la Pena is a charming story of a little boy and his Nana as they ride through town to the last stop on the bus. We see the world through the innocent eyes of the young boy who will open your eyes as well. I am particularly attracted to illustrations in children's picture books and these by Christian Robinson are marvelous. I wish I could own the originals that look as if they were done in wash. A good choice for your children. ( )

Every Sunday CJ and his grandma take a bus to Market Street. This particular Sunday CJ was upset that it was raining and why they couldn't just get a car like everyone else. CJ's grandma helped him to see the wonderful things the bus has to offer. Such as the nice bus driver, a blind man, a guitar player who plays a song for CJ. The song made CJ see everything differently when he closed his eyes and felt the music. At the end they get to their stop and volunteer at a soup kitchen and CJ realized why he liked coming their every Sunday and how important it was.

Every Sunday CJ rides the bus through town with his grandmother. This day though CJ ask her many questions: why they do not have a car; why he does not have gadgets like the other children on the bus; why they have to get off in the ugly part of town. His grandmother reminds him of the beauty in the things that they do have and why their Sunday routine together is so special. Even though they do not have what everyone else has, they have what they need and one another. ( )

Every Sunday after church, CJ and his grandma ride the bus across town. But today, CJ wonders why they don't own a car like his friend Colby. Why doesn’t he have an iPod like the boys on the bus? How come they always have to get off in the dirty part of town? Each question is met with an encouraging answer from grandma, who helps him see the beauty—and fun—in their routine and the world around them.
This energetic ride through a bustling city highlights the wonderful perspective only grandparent and grandchild can share, and comes to life through Matt de la Pena’s vibrant text and Christian Robinson’s radiant illustrations.
