Description
(Winner of the 2016 Newbery Medal, and named a Caldecott Honor Book, a Coretta Scott King Honor Book, and a New York Times Book Review Notable Children's Book of the Year) This uplifting tale for readers and listeners up to 8 follows a young boy named CJ and his wise Nana on a bus ride across town. CJ wonders why they don't have a car like his friend Colby, or an iPod like the boys on the bus, and how come they always have to get off in the dirty part of town? Each question is met with an encouraging answer from Nana, who helps him see the beauty in their life and world around them.

"It's also the warmth of their intergenerational relationship that will make this book so satisfying, for both young readers and the adults sharing it with them."—NYTBR

"Like still waters, [Matt] de la Peña and [Christian] Robinson's story runs deep. It finds beauty in unexpected places, explores the difference between what's fleeting and what lasts, acknowledges inequality, and testifies to the love shared by an African-American boy and his grandmother."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"De la Peña and Robinson here are carrying on for Ezra Jack Keats in spirit and visual style. This quietly remarkable book will likely inspire questions.... It will also have some adult readers reaching for a tissue."—Horn Book (starred review)
