Product Details


A vision of divine love, a love incarnated in a warm, round, brown-skinned grandmother….Nontraditional spiritual literature for children often falters in the execution; this work fulfills its promise
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

A lush, haunting story that brings together a grandmother and her grandchild.…Morales captures the luminosity of both the sky and the people on earth striving and straining to make the world a better place. The endnotes by author and artist add insight into a book meant to be discussed
—Booklist (starred review)

Creation stories, mythology, and legends come together in a story incorporating themes of human struggle, community, and faith. Morales’ stunning digitally manipulated acrylic drawings, showcasing strong yet loving women, have a dream-like quality and do an outstanding job of depicting a caring, culturally diverse world.
—Library Media Connection (starred review)

Beautiful, luminous paintings, with soft edges and gently rounded figures
—Kirkus Reveiws

From a place of bittersweet longing, Maya Soetoro-Ng writes an introspective children’s book that inspires all ages. What we find in Ladder to the Moon are epic images and inescapable stories that connect us through inevitable loss and spiritual understanding.
