The latest addition to the On My Own Holidays series, Day of the Dead by Linda Lowery, illus. by Barbara Knutson, describes the origins of this Mexican holiday (El dia de los muertos), which honors family members who have died. People attend parades, picnic near loved ones' final resting places, and share traditional treats such as chocolate calaveras (skulls). Brief text and folk-art illustrations make the holiday accessible and also accentuate its joyful aspects. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
