Summary

For listeners of Newbery Winner Last Stop on Market Street by Matt de la Peña.

Every day, a young girl is disheartened by the things in her neighborhood: the trash on the streets, the graffiti on the walls, and the homeless woman that sleeps in a box. When she learns the word "beautiful" at school, she sets out to find "something beautiful" in her surroundings. In her search, this little girl learns to see beyond the barren ugliness of her environment to find beauty in her friendships, her family, and herself.

Critic reviews

"This moving picture book offers a shining testament to the ability of human beings to find "something beautiful" in even the most unlikely places.... Soentpiet's paintings are luminously lifelike. [T]he paintings focus on a community so real, readers can almost feel the sunlight on their faces."—Publishers Weekly
