Sometimes when you're surrounded by dirt, CJ, you're a better witness for what's beautiful.

Through energy and encouragement, CJ's nana helps him see the beauty and fun in their routine. This beautifully illustrated, emotive picture book explores urban life with honesty, interest and gratitude. Last Stop on Market Street has won multiple awards and spent time at the number one spot in the New York Times Bestseller List.
