As a perennial user of public transportation, I enjoyed this story a lot. I could recognize some of my own favorite bus trips in here, where you get to know some of the characters you see every day, and sometimes you make new acquaintances or experiences sudden beautiful surprises.
It's also important for kids to have books that reflect a variety of experiences, including the experience of being poor. Growing up poor can mean seeming different to your classmates, and I hope reading this book can help show kids with less experience in poverty that there can still be dignity in being poor, and can show kids living in poverty that there are kids' book authors and teachers out there thinking about them.

This is a great book about a boy who goes on a bus with his grandmother and her grandson CJ. When they are on the bus the grandma teaches CJ about the world around him and he learns to not ignore the things around him. She wants him to appreciate all things in life. The grandma wants Cj to see life from all different areas. This is a great book for elementary in general because it has a good moral lesson. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399257748, Hardcover)

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.
