Editorial Reviews

Mi Familia Calaca / My Skeleton Family is great fun for the youngest children - both hablantes and English speakers - and can lend itself to a plethora of art projects during celebrations of El Dia de los Muertos, and any other time as well. Highly recommended.-De Colores: The Raza Experience in Books for Children
