Ladder to the Moon (Book Review)

Ladder to the Moon by Maya Soetoro-Ng

Illustrated by Yuyi Morales

Ages: 5-9

Grades: K-4

From Maya Soetoro-Ng, sister of President Obama, comes a lyrical story relaying the loving wisdom of their late mother to a young granddaughter she never met.

Little Suhaila wants to know what her Grandma Annie was like. "She was like the moon," her mother replies. "Full, soft, and curious. Your grandma would wrap her arms around the whole world if she could."

Ladder to the Moon is sweet tale of love that lives on even after we lose the ones we love. Illustrated by Yuyi Morales, this beautiful book one every child will love.

Thanks to our friends at Candlewick Press for sharing this fun children's book with us.
