Review: Last Stop on Market Street (2015)

Last Stop on Market StreetLast Stop on Market Street by Matt de la Pena

He wondered how his nana always found beautiful where he never even thought to look.

CJ and his Nana travel by bus to a soup kitchen after church on Sundays.  CJ has lots of questions for his grandmother and her answers are insightful and wise. I like this book more and more each time I read it.  Nana’s optimistic view of life is inspirational, for both me and CJ.  The pictures by Christian Robinson are simple and engaging and I love how De La Pena uses the story line to take the reader’s attention in one direction and then how the picture on the last page of the book can completely change the readers’ perspective.  This is a fabulous book to read out loud to children and I will be seeking out a copy to add to my personal library.   -Marika
