Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, is a holiday that originated from Aztec traditions and is currently celebrated in Mexico and among others of Mexican heritage. This holiday is used as a chance to remember and celebrate family and friends who have died. While the dates of the holiday coincide with the Halloween holiday, it is not viewed as spooky in any way. Instead of donning costumes to ward off spirits, Dia de los Muertos activities are designed to bring back the spirits of their departed ancestors and loved ones. With that brief history in mind, we have created a list of the best children's books about Dia de lost Muertos. These books illustrate many of the traditions and activities people look forward to participating in on the Day of the Dead. Included in the list are many favorites like "Clatter Bash! A Day of the Dead Celebration," "The Dead Family Diaz," "Day of the Dead," by Tony Johnston and "Rosita y Conchita (Rosita and Conchita)." These books about the Day of the Dead for kids are often written in both Spanish and English. Impressively, many have clever rhyming schemes in both languages. While most books on the list are picture books, this list also includes a board book for younger children, usually ages 0-2, and a chapter book about the holiday. Picture books are a treat for all ages and these books really teach the history of Dia de los Muertos in a fun and engaging way that your youngest and oldest reader will enjoy. Now, before we all grow old and join those spirits on the other side, let's jump into this list and discover some great books!
