Children’s Book Committee – October Pick

October 22, 2015


Last Stop on Market Street
by Matt De La Peña
illustrated by Christian Robinson
(G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers)

A grandmother gently guides her complaining grandson to see the beauty in his environment of urban poverty.  Bright bold illustrations.  (4-6)

Our Young Reviewer says:

This book has beautiful and detailed illustrations. I also like it because I go to church with my grandparents and so does the main character C.J. We share special moments even on days that aren’t so great because they always show me and my sister how much they love and care for us.

– Anthony, 8
