This book is all about kindness and empathy and being grateful for all you have in life. A great activity for this would be to have students write about what they are grateful for in their life and then they can share with the class.

This story is about a little boy named CJ and his Grandma who ride the bus across town every Sunday after church. CJ begins to become curious as they are riding the bus and wonders why they do not have a car or electronics like his other friends? Why they have to get off the bus in the âdirtyâ part of town? His grandma encourages him to see the beauty in what he does have and in the differences in their lives.

CJ, a young boy, comes to realize that the most important things in life are not material things like what you own and what you wear, but they are how you make others feel and what you do to help others.
I love this book! Such a cute and unique story about how CJ, the main character, comes to understand the important things in life are not material things but they are being kind and helping others. The illustrations in this book are absolutely gorgeous, too!

Interesting take on a simple bus ride where a boy contemplated life wit his nana. On the city bus. He seems to complain about what other bus riders have, but his nana shows him how blessed they are to see the world in another view. It is easy to see they are poor city family, but the love a view of the world is so serene.
Although I am reading Resurrecting Midnight, I wanted to read this short book that I checked out at my school‘s library. It was a great read!
Peña‘s work on his RF, Caldecott Award winning book is a touching and rewarding add to classroom libraries. As CJ takes his normal Sunday ride on the bus with grandma after church, he begins to question things like why he doesn‘t have the same things as others, and why they have to live in their part of town. CJ‘s grandmother helps him to see the beauty in the things they do have, which serves as one of the themes for this book.
This RF Caldecott Honor book is a great read for everyone. Nana helps CJ see all there is to be thankful for and some of the beauty in life‘s little things. This would be good for PR. #ucflae3414sp21

At first CJ is upset that he cannot do what he sees his other friends do, but soon realizes the beauty that surrounds him. #UCFLAE3414SP21

The story she has a poignant view about seeing the beauty within and not judging outward appearances. It also touches upon social inequity in a child friendly manner. Can't reccomend this book enough as a read aloud for a classroom.

Last Stop on Market Street! ð This RF, RA, Newberry Medal Winner is a great add to an elementary classroom. This book encompasses the idea that beauty can be found in unlikely places. The book takes us on CJ‘s journey with his Nana starting at the church up until they make it to the soup kitchen. CJ seems to question a lot of things and his grandma helps him find the beauty in even the smallest things.
Practicing shared reading with my sweet boy Armani until I can share in a classroom! Beautiful read.
This is a great conversation starter with your kids on diversity and appreciation and kindness. Nicely illustrated too.
This RF book written by Matt de la Pena and illustrated by Christian Robinson will blow you away. It won a Caldecott and Newbery medal in 2016 and after reading I know why now. This book shows you the relationship between a grandma and grandson and how the grandson is always asking questions about other people like his friends having stuff that him and grandma do not. I think this would be a great RA for the classroom. #ucflae3414su20
This RF picture book is all about appreciation. A little boy named Cj has always felt envious of what others had, until his Nana changed his perspective. Read this story and embark on a wonderful journey in regards to the simplicities in life. This book makes a great RA and can provide that teachable moment about being grateful for the little things in life :) #ucflae3414su20
CJ and his nana have the same routine on Sundays...taking the bus until the last stop on Market Street. What CJ discovers on this trip is beauty and kindness, respect and unselfish service to others. Bright illustrations help bring the story to life. The ending is quite simply magical and touching. Letter L for #BBRC #A2Z
LSoMS is an adequate picture book about a boy and his grandmother. Nana gives CJ answers to his many questions that redirect him from envy to appreciation. There are diverse characters. That being said, I'm not sure why it won so many awards. It's not a âwow!â

CJ and his grandma get out of church and head to the last stop on Market Street. Today CJ is not happy with the journey but by the end of it he truly learns to love it. Last Stop on Market Street is an RF book and I believe That it's best use in the class would be within a RA.

The Last Stop on Market Street is a Coretta Scott King Award picture book. Great for RA and ST; with every single page, there is something new to discuss and share with the little ears. Every Sunday, Cj travels on the bus with his Nani. His Nany helps him view the world differently and appreciate every person no matter their disability, color, talent, income, etc. She teaches him to see beauty, even in the ugliest of circumstances.
We started our Caldecott Tournament of Books today. We went with two books I already had on hand. Madeline was the winner (I‘m guessing the dog named Genevieve had a bit to do with it), although it was a tough choice!
