This month we received The Last Stop on Market Street written by Matt De La Pena and illustrated by Christian Robinson through our Imagination Library subscription. This vibrantly illustrated children’s book tells the story of a young boy on a bus ride with his grandmother from church to the soup kitchen where they volunteer. Along their journey they encounter many different types of people and the little boy grows to appreciate the beauty in the diversity of the world.
I’ve used this as an opportunity to divert from our current narrow scope of Paw Patrol and Disney Princesses. Here are a few picture books I’ve added to our quarantine reading list to add a little more cultural diversity to our current confines.
