This book would be good for the primary level. It would be good to start conversations about kindness and serving others. The book is about a boy and his grandma that go to serve at a soup kitchen after church. We also see how the boy finds a lot of beauty around him when others may not. ( )

Every Sunday after church, CJ and his grandma ride the bus across town. But today CJ has a lot of questions. 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 ways that we're all different and we're equal.
