Mi familia calaca/My Skeleton Family

School Library Journal

K-Gr 2–Anita, an adorable papier-mâché skeleton, introduces readers to her extended family. The text is simple and straightforward, appearing in both English and Spanish, using basic sentences to define the role of each family member or to describe them. This book could be used in units on teaching sentence structure or for independent reading. The photographed Oaxacan folk-art figures will make readers smile as each one has a fixed grin, as one would expect from a well-dressed skeleton. Anita’s mother is wearing strands of pearls, great grandmother is featured with her walker, and the dog is wearing a sweater. This book would be a welcome and culturally relevant addition to beginning-reader collections.–Maricela Leon-Barrera, San Francisco Public Library
