Last Stop on Market Street
By Matt de la Peña, Christian Robinson
Why this book?
Although this picture book tells the story of a single bus journey, it somehow contains the whole world. A child makes a very ordinary trip with his grandmother, but along the way, we meet all kinds of people. People without homes, people with tattoos and those in wheelchairs, buskers, teenagers, a blind man, and a lady with some butterflies in a jamjar. We see beauty in the every day and see the world through other people’s eyes. Not only one of my favourite books, but one of my son’s too.
