Read in October, 2010


This little book is half dual language English-Spanish poems and half informative mini-essays. The nonfiction portion includes back and a brief description of the holiday the Day of the Dead, how to celebrate the Day of the Dead, how to build a Day of the Dead altar, and easy versions of traditional recipes for pan due Muerto and sugar skulls. The illustrations are lavish and fun, and the poetry is short, sweet, and written for small children.
