Ladder to the Moon

author: Maya Soetoro-Ng
illustrator: Yuyi Morales

Little Suhaila wishes she could have known her grandma, who would wrap her arms around the whole world if she could, Mama says. And one night, Suhaila gets her wish when a golden ladder appears at her window and Grandma Annie invites the girl to go along with her on a magical journey. Maya Soetoro-Ng and Yuyi Moralesís dreamlike tale reminds us that loved ones lost are always with us, and that sometimes we need only look at the moon and remember.

ďA lush, haunting story that brings together a grandmother and her grandchild. . . . Soetoro-Ng, maternal half-sister of Barack Obama, has written this story of compassion as a tribute to their mother.ĒóBooklist (starred review)
