Reviews

Ballesteros's vibrant and child-friendly art bursts off the page, sometimes overcrowding the tableau in a way that marries well with the partylike atmosphere...A jovial primer on the Latin American holiday for the uninitiated and a fiesta for those who already partake.--School Library Journal

Spanish words are so seamlessly woven throughout the text that readers unfamiliar with the terms will easily grasp their meanings through context and accompanying illustrations...A great choice for readers who celebrate the holiday and those wanting to learn more about it.--Booklist Online

STARRED REVIEW! Thong once again proves her mastery at creating a multicultural picture-book text that engages all readers...The rhyme is rhythmic and effortless, making it a delightful read-aloud...This enchanting presentation of the Dia de los Muertos holiday will resonate with both those who are new to its traditions and those who have been celebrating for generations.--Kirkus Reviews starred review

Thong smoothly incorporates Spanish words into her playful verse: 'We share in the foods that our guests loved to eat--/ fresh fruit and tamales, a holiday treat.'--Publishers Weekly
