Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"A warm, fictional introduction." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"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

Synopsis:

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.

This is an absolutely ADORABLE book. I collect Day of the Dead stuff, and this is a great part of my collection. This book helps you learn Spanish while brushing up on your Mexican history! The illustrations are cute and well-done, the book is well-written and definitely for any age!
