Come join in these joyful and vibrant festivities that are a tradition in Mexico, the United States, and throughout Latin America.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "It's Dia de los Muertos, and all the children in town are preparing for the celebration! Altares are decorated, sweets are made, and papel picado is strungup to swing in the breeze before everyone dresses in costumes for the bigparade. Told in simple verse, thisbook celebrates the joy of the holiday and the beliefs behind it while simultaneously familiarizing readers with each element of the celebration. Spanish words are so seamlesslywoven throughout the text that readers unfamiliar with the terms will easily grasptheir meanings through context and accompanying illustrations. The rhymes flow naturally with apleasant cadence and celebratory tone. Ballesteros' charming illustrationsfill the pages with delightful and amusing details, and the bold shapes andbright colors heighten the festive atmosphere. Included are a glossary and endnotes explaining the originsof the holiday, along with an explanation of the traditional foods andactivities. A great choice forreaders who celebrate the holiday and those wanting to learn more about it.--Hayes, Summer Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Village children and their families celebrate the Latin American holiday el Día de los Muertos by leaving gifts for departed loved ones in a cemetery, dressing up as ghosts and skeletons, and joining in a festive parade. Ballesteros's digital art features blocky, geometrical forms, and he gives his smiling characters dot eyes and blunt, toylike features. Thong smoothly incorporates Spanish words into her playful verse: "We share in the foods that our guests loved to eat-/ fresh fruit and tamales, a holiday treat." Readers may recognize similarities between Halloween and Day of the Dead traditions, though Ballesteros and Thong capture this holiday's distinctive cultural flavor; one parade attendee, Luz, "looks like someone we've all seen before," and the prominent eyebrow of her skeleton mask makes it clear she's dressed as Frida Kahlo.
