And now, Day of the Dead

Slushpile of the Dead

One of the editors here keeps this slightly modified Día de los Muertos diorama near her desk to remind herself that the slush pile of the dead is even more eternal than the one in her office.

We’re showing it to remind you that with this fall’s new release, I Remember Abuelito / Yo recuerdo a Abuelito by Janice Levy and illustrated by Loretta Lopez, we now have two Day of the Dead picture books available, and both books are bilingual editions. Abuelito was recently featured in School Library Journal’s Curriculum Connections newsletter, which is a great collection of resources about the holiday.
