Celebrating Dia de los Muertos

From the Set Celebrating Holidays

Dia de los Muertos, or 'Day of the Dead', may seem like a bleak name for a holiday. But this exciting occasion is actually a special time to remember loved ones and to celebrate life. Young readers discover how food, fun, and memories contribute to a festival that is more about rejoicing than mourning. Additional features to aid comprehension include activities and poetry, informative sidebars, a table of contents, a phonetic glossary, sources for further research, an index, and an introduction to the author and illustrator.
