From an award-winning pair of picture book collaborators, Matt de la Pena and Christian Robinson, readers take a trip through a vibrant urban town with a boy and his grandma. Every Sunday after church, CJ and his grandma take the bus across town. But on this particular day, CJ wonders why they can't ride in a car like his friend Colby. Why can't he have an iPod like the boys on the bus? How come they always have to get off in the dirty part of town? Each new question is met with an encouraging answer from grandma, who needs a car when you can ride a bus that breathes fire, who needs headphones when there's a guitar player right next to you, and who wants to go straight home after church when you can spend time with friends and neighbors at the soup kitchen. CJ's grandma helps him see the beauty in their routine and the world around them.
