about

Follow two children as they celebrate their ancestors in this bilingual introduction to el Día de los Muertos-- the Day of the Dead!

They 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, presented in both Spanish and English.  An author's note provides more detail on the holiday, its historical context, and the inspiration behind the artwork.  

Bob Barner's signature collages incorporate the traditional Day of the Dead symbols and bright, bold colors to evoke the joyful atmosphere of this vibrant holiday.

Celebrate our ancestors on the Day of the Dead / Honremos a los antepasados en el Día de los Muertos!
