Above a small town in Mexico, the sun rises like a great marigold, and one family begins preparations for an annual celebration, " El dIa de los muertos, "the Day of the Dead. Soon they will go out into the night, join their neighbors, and walk to the graveyard to welcome the spirits of their loved ones home again. Framed by decorative borders and peppered with Spanish words, "Day of the Dead" is a glorious introduction to a fascinating celebration. A note at the end of the book provides factual information about the holiday.
