Follow two children in this bilingual picture book as they celebrate their ancestors on this vibrant holiday.
The youngsters offer marigolds, sugar skulls, and special bread, and make delicious foods. By spreading marigold petals, they guide the dead home to join the festivities. Finally, after singing and dancing, it's time for bed. Bob Barner's luscious collages incorporate the traditional symbols of Day of the Dead. His poetic text is in both English and Spanish. An author's note provides additional information on the holiday.
