“Above a small town in Mexico, the sun rises like a great marigold.” So begins one family’s preparation for El día de los muertos. The children are eager to try just a taste of this and that, but everyone says they must wait until the family is ready to take their offerings to the cemetery for a night of celebration and remembrance. The warmth of this story about one of Mexico’s most important traditions shines through the text and illustrations.
