Inspired by one of the most recognized symbols of Dia de Muertos or “Day of the Dead,” a holiday that celebrates life and remembers the dearly departed, this book will introduce little ones to emotional expressions and their first English and Spanish words.
Beautiful illustrations! One simple English word and one Spanish word on each page makes this a very easy book for little ones. Each word is an emotion that can be talked about in depth or just simply introduced to children.
