NC Bookgirl reads Last stop on Market Street

This story by Matt De La Pena is one the 2016 NC Children's Book Award nominees.  It is a cute realistic fiction story about a little boy and his grandmother and their after church habit of helping at a soup kitchen.  What is great about this story is how the little boy sees things he wants, and complains along the ride about it.  His grandmother points out the things he is lucky to have and experience which he finally realizes by the end of the story. 

UPDATE:  I knew this was a special story.  Now the world knows it too.  It won the Newbery Award for best writing.  Yes a PICTURE book won the Newbery! 

Keep Calm and Read on,
NC Bookgirl
