Day of the Deadby Tony Johnston
Synopses & Reviews
Above a small town in Mexico, the sun rises like a great marigold, and one family begins preparations for an annual celebration, El día de los muertos, the Day of the Dead. Soon they will go out into the night, join their neighbors, and walk to the graveyard to welcome the spirits of their loved ones home again. Framed by decorative borders and peppered with Spanish words, Day of the Dead is a glorious introduction to a fascinating celebration. A note at the end of the book provides factual information about the holiday.
"A warm, fictional introduction." Kirkus Reviews
"The text and pictures abound with the rhythms of the Spanish language and the joyousness of the tradition of remembering relatives who have died." Children's Literature
This written tribute to the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead is filled with cultural icons, rituals, and customs that bring the holiday to life for the reader. Full-color illustrations.
