REVIEW: Last Stop on Market Street

Today’s blog review features a title that’s gotten a lot of attention this year for being the Newbery Award winner: Fiction Picture Books finalist Last Stop on Market Street written by Matt de la Peña and illustrated by Christian Robinson. Our reviewer is Cybils veteran Mary Ann Scheuer of the blog Great Kid Books–this year she’s a Round 2 judge for Elementary/Middle Grade Nonfiction, but she reviews all kinds of books for kids aged 4-14. About this one, she said:

“I love how picture books can capture a small moment–and help us hold onto the small moments in our own lives. Matt de la Peña and Christian Robinson’s wonderful picture book Last Stop on Market Street makes me smile every single time I read it–it’s so filled with love, friendship and an appreciation for life, in such a real way.”
