Publisher Summary

It’s Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) and children throughout the pueblo, or town, are getting ready to celebrate! They decorate with colored streamers, calaveras, or sugar skulls, and pan de muertos, or bread of the dead. There are altars draped in cloth and covered in marigolds and twinkling candles. Music fills the streets. Join the fun and festivities, learn about a different cultural tradition, and brush up on your Spanish vocabulary, as the town honors their dearly departed in a traditional, time-honored style. ¡Es el Día de los Muertos y todos los niños del pueblo y ciudad están listos para celebrar!

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

Husband. Father. Children's Book Critic Extraordinaire:)

Fantastic rhyming, playful and colorful illustrations, and a celebratory message about honoring ancestors on the Dia de Los Muertos are a few reasons I think this is an excellent book. The inclusion of Spanish words might be make reading aloud a little awkward for some readers, but it gives the title a very authentic feel (and conveniently helps with the rhyming at times).
