The Festival of Bones / El festival de las calaveras

Reforma Newsletter

"Originally published in Mexico, this is a bilingual primer on the Day of the Dead. It is a cute, funny, little book that will be enjoyed by kids of all ages. The funny looking skeletons, created by renowned Mexican artist Luis San Vicente and the hilarious verses that accompany each illustration make fun of death while, at the same time, introducing young kids to the ancient Aztec celebration of the Day of the Dead. This celebration takes place November 1st through 2nd. Also offered is an explanation of the Day of the Dead and how people celebrate it in Mexico and in other Spanish-speaking countries. This is a dual-language book that will be enjoyed by Spanish and English readers alike. Teachers will find it useful for teaching poetry as well as teaching about an important Mexican holiday. Highly recommended!"
