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.

    Last Stop On Market Street was a truly inspirational book to me. It helped me to see the little happy things in life that I tend to commonly miss out on. In this book, a young boy named CJ wants to know why various people he sees have more luxurious stuff than he does. This always nearly tends to be a problem, but every time, his grandma gives a straight, witty answer. I also thought this was a great book because it taught a lesson, that you don't need money to enjoy life, because you can just be happy with what you have. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends, because of the inspirational message is spreads throughout the story. Therefore, I rate this book five stars.
