Another fantastic bilingual (Spanish/English) book by SOLO Spanish. Do you teach a unit on cultural celebrations? Dia de los Muertos is an important Mexican-American holiday, now celebrated throughout the United States. At a time when Halloween has been lost to commercial candy and scary costumes, Day of the Dead is a great family and community tradition that teaches us to remember our past loved ones. This book will take you on a journey with Tonalli's family and all the activities they do (making sugar skulls, papel picado, tamales, and an altar) in preparation for Dia de los Muertos. The book boasts bright, colorful photography and unique illustrations by Jose Carlos. There are some worksheets at the end to test students on learning. This book can be purchased in print by www.redroadbooks.com.
