El D�a de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is the Mexican equivalent of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day. It is a popular festival among Mexicans living in the United States and Canada.

Graves and altars are decorated with bright flowers like marigold. Offerings of food and anything else that the deceased liked are also made.

Day of the Dead

“This series will be a welcome addition to primary classes which are taking a beginning look at different cultures and their celebrations. The large print and colourful illustrations make the books accessible to very young readers on an individual basis or in large group situations.” —Resource Links, 02/09 “Interesting and informative, the volumes in this series will not only help children to better understand other cultures but also to celebrate diversity. Recommended.” —CM Magazine, 12/08
