Description:The love and rituals surrounding the Mexican folk holiday The Day of the Dead.
After her beloved grandmother dies, Rosita hopes to be reunited with Abuelita as she prepares a gift to give her when her family celebrates the Day of the Dead. Rosita wishes that her grandmother, whom she adored, could be remembered in a special way. She uses the occasion of el D!a de los Muertos to make a gift that is just right to celebrate Abuelita. This is an exceptional book to use in a classroom to discuss the loss of loved ones. (32 pgs) Ages 5+

Ashay says, "Before I began my daily ritual of honoring my own Ancestors, this Mexican holiday sounded kind of creepy. But now I overstand and recognize that it is a space in time to honor and give thanks to their Ancestors. This is something I think all children should learn about. The importance of their Ancestors past and present and future. This is a great story with some very interesting art illustrations. Must have for the classroom and library. Teach!"
