Dia de los muertos

Here are some more recommended reads to help familiarize your little ones with Dia de los Muertos-

Dia de los Muertos, by Roseanne Greenfield Thong, is an English text written in rhyme that introduces Spanish vocabulary terms for those who are non-native speakers. I find that it gives such a nice background for the elementary school aged group regarding this sacred and important holiday! 


Day of the Dead by Tony Johnston, is another English text with Spanish vocabulary terms and is easy for younger ones to read on the go given its relatively smaller size. Bonus- the illustrator, Jeanette Winter, also has another text, Calavera Abecedario: A Day of the Dead Alphabet, which I also have to check out for next time! 


La Catrina, by Patty Rodriguez and Ariana Stein, is a board book for the smallest of readers (infants) with lovely illustrations themed from the Day of the Dead, introducing one to a variety of feelings! Love how bright and jovial the artwork comes across!

Happy celebrating to you and your families! <3
