“laststopstickers” “naname”

Having Last Stop on Market Street recognized by the Coretta Scott King, Caldecott and Newbery committees is truly unimaginable. The pictures in this book were inspired by memories of riding the bus with my grandmother, who raised my brother and me, and taught me to count my blessings. Today I feel deeply blessed and humbled to be a part of a book that is inclusive and honors the experience of children who share a similar story. Celebrating this moment with my Nana is the greatest gift.

A community center working with the children of Binghampton to promote each one’s creative potential and self worth through exposure to artistic, educational, and vocational programs. This place is the real deal, if you have it to give, please consider supporting them in their mission. To learn how click the link: Suppport the Garden
