Even the youngest Spanish-speaking kids can enjoy the ghosts, skeletons and treats that make this spirited holiday unique!

With sweet-smelling marigold petals and joyful songs, a family welcomes back their beloved ancestors. This lively and colorful (and not too scary) tribute to a unique holiday is now available in a Spanish-only edition.

Two children prepare offerings of flowers, sugar skulls, and special bread, and make delicious foods to eat and share. By spreading marigold petals, they guide the dead home to join the festivities. After hours of singing, dancing, and reminiscing, it's time for bed.

The festivities are described in brief, lyrical text. Bob Barner's signature collages incorporate the traditional Day of the Dead symbols with bright, bold colors that evoke the joyful atmosphere of this vibrant holiday.

¡Honremos a los antepasados en el Día de los Muertos! We celebrate our ancestors on the Day of the Dead.
