What weabout it
This book shows San Francisco in all its gritty glory, and teaches us that beauty can be found everywhere.


Want a real San Francisco experience? Skip Fisherman’s Wharf and take the bus.

The story follows a boy and his Nana, who ride from church to a soup kitchen. At first the boy envies his friends who can spend their Sundays freely, but Nana teaches him to appreciate that which he resists: the rain, the bus, the poor.

Few children’s books confront poverty. This critically acclaimed release does so believably, and beautifully. We see the graffitti, the tattoo-covered man, the eccentric old woman.

This book encourages us not to look away, but to engage—because it brings rich rewards.
