To the Moon and Back for You

We rated this book:


To the Moon and Back for You is a beautiful representation of what mothers go through to have their children. Through poetic language, this book explains to a young child the trials of infertility. It shows concepts about the long and hard journey in a way that a child can understand.

The writing is very sparse, but the text is meaningful. It hits all the right notes on what being a mother is from the trial of getting there to the joy of becoming a mother. It also explains to the child that the mother would do anything to be with them. I know most mothers absolutely feel this way.

The illustrations are exquisite. I love the beautiful colors and details used on each page. It really shows the journey it takes to become a mother. I teared up reading this book because I lost two children to miscarriage and for a little while wondered if I would ever get to hold and meet my children that I now have.

My kids loved this book. My three-year-old daughter loved the mother and baby at the end and my six-year-old son loved the adventure. I’d recommend this book for ages three to six and for anyone who has gone through a journey to motherhood.
