Through this multi-award winning text, students will journey with a young
boy and his nana as they make their way to the Last Stop on Market Street.
Following the grandmother’s lead, students will be challenged to say YES! to
the beauty in the world around them and encouraged to lose themselves in
a rainbow- inspired world of discovery through music, dance and science.
