about this item

"A lush, haunting story that brings together a grandmother and her grandchild. . . . Captures the luminosity of both the sky and the people on earth striving to make the world a better place."— Booklist (starred review)Una noche fresca de luna llena,Suhaila le preguntó a su mamá:?¿Cómo era Abuela Annie??Tu abuela era como la Luna?le contestó su mamá?.Llena, suave, curiosa.Tu abuela rodearía el mundo entero con sus brazos si fuera posible.En una noche adornada de estrellas, Suhaila ve realizado el sueño de conocer a su abuela cuando una escalera dorada aparece en su ventana y Abuela Annie, tendiéndole sus brazos, invita a Suhaila a una maravillosa aventura. De la mano de Maya Soetoro-Ng, hermana del Presidente Obama, nos llega una lírica historia inspirada en la vida y en el espíritu de su madre, Ann Dunham. Esta mágica aventura, de fantasía y folclore, evoca sucesos que han afectado a personas a través del mundo, y reafirma nuestra humanidad común. El asombroso arte de Yuyi Morales ilumina el camino, recordándonos que nuestros seres queridos están siempre junto a nosotros, y que a veces solo es necesario mirar a la Luna para comprobarlo.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 come along with her on a magical journey. Renowned translator Teresa Mlawer has translated this dreamlike tale into Spanish, reminding us that loved ones lost are always with us, and that sometimes we need only look at the moon to remember.
