Baby-Toddler–There is much to talk about and share in this colorful board book title focused on 100 words relating to El Día de los Muertos. Each spread is dedicated to presenting terms for colors, clothing, food, the skeletal system, and even cemeteries and the afterlife. Every scene is full of vibrant color and life, with the majority of individuals depicted taking the famous form of the skeletons associated with this special time. Words are given in English and Spanish. The afterlife spread depicts words central to the holiday like “Mariposas monarcas” and “Alebrije.” Readers will also learn how to describe dearly departed family members, such as “ancestor/antepasado.” This lovely board book is a unique “First 100 Words” title that shares words relating to the many foods, musical instruments, and other parts of this special time, and would be a great choice during the fall or any time when learning new vocabulary.
VERDICT A perfect addition to bilingual board book collections, especially where Lil’ Libros and Día de los Muertos titles are popular.
