Great book for kids

Our 3 year old loves the book. The pictures in it make it so much interactive.

Using correct English

I did not like this book. I thought the story was boring and using incorrect English in a children's book I think is unacceptable!

Fun story!

I read this with my kids throughout the week and they all loved the story, they liked the characters and drawings. My son found the drawings to be pretty interesting, I really like that the story teaches kids to admire and appreciate what’s in front of them and to give back. I kind of wish the ending was a bit different, it seemed like it was cut short and abrupt, which is why I gave it 4 stars. When we got to the last page, it just didn’t seem like proper ending. The story was still overall very beautiful.

A good bedtime book

I have read this many times with my children.

Wonderful book about seeing the beauty where others may fail to do so.

Teaches kids valuable lessons about seeing the beauty right in front of them

Beautiful and Inspirational

The story and the illustrations are both wonderful. The book depicts a boy and his grandmother riding the bus after church. On the way, there are little details that remind you to appreciate life and the people you meet each day. In the end, they arrive at a soup kitchen. It's a simple story about a ride on a bus, but it contains beautiful lessons about appreciating and serving others.

Last Stop on Market Street in Remembering to Be Kind
Remembering to Be Kind
Published by Barbara Hagen • November 13, 2020

Kindness is one of the things we learn earliest in life. Learning to say "please" and "thank you." Being respectful. Learning to share. We should all be pretty good at this kindness thing, but when I look media posts, or news stories, or even just observe society around us, it is clear our early education in kindness has fallen by the wayside. On this World Kindness Day, November 13, 2020, let's all take a few minutes and remember some of those early life lessons.
