bedtime reading

This has become one of our favorite bedtime reads…and I love it.  Last Stop on Market Street tells the story of a little boy and his grandma on the way to a soup kitchen. It is beautifully written and allows S and I to use our imagination along the way.

One of the reasons I love it (besides the fact that it’s a break from our beloved Berenstain Bears books) is that it talks about helping others. About seeing the good…about seeing the beauty. But it does it in a way that is so relatable for young children. The entire tale takes place on a bus ride – and it gives S and I both a chance to talk about the scenery, the passengers, and what makes them unique.

Definitely worth checking out if you are looking for a new book for the kids!
