STARRED REVIEW Thong once again proves her mastery at creating a multicultural picture-book text that engages all readers...The rhyme is rhythmic and effortless, making it a delightful read-aloud...This enchanting presentation of the Dia de los Muertos holiday will resonate with both those who are new to its traditions and those who have been celebrating for generations.--Kirkus Reviews starred review

Celebrate life, family, and friends with the rich traditions of this special day

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.
