Every Sunday after church, CJ rides the bus with his Nana all the way to the last stop in Market Street to help in a Soup Kitchen. CJ has many questions for his Nana. Why they have to wait for the bus under the rain? Why they don't have a car? Why everything looks so dirty at Market Street? And Nana always finds an answer focused in the positive aspects about the ride: the things they see, the people they meet, the moments they share together.

A beautiful teaching is contained in the pages of this book, and the pictures are colorful and attractive. Who can resist such a beautiful orange cover?
