Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara Wheatley
Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead "is somewhat like the United States's holidays of Halloween and Memorial Day rolled into one," begins McGee in this book from the series "Paper Craft Fun for Holidays." Readers are introduced to the holiday celebrated on November 1 and 2 that honors loved ones who have died. The paper marigold, skeleton candy basket, skull mask, and Aztec animal decoration projects use paper and other everyday supplies such as crayons, scissors, and glue to complete. The skeleton pets project requires air dry modeling compound and pipe cleaners, in addition to other supplies to complete. Completing the modeling portion of this project will require a little patience, but can be completed by younger children with help. The final two projects require more help from an adult. The paper clothes for the skeletons demand fine motor dexterity in gluing the clothes on the skeletons to look like seams on real clothes. The paper cortado window banners are made with tissue paper, and require detailed cutting, so this will be a challenge for younger readers. Each project includes a detailed list of materials and supplies needed, along with step-by-step instructions, photographs, and a summary of how this design is used or originated. The one confusing part of the book is that each project requires the reader to trace a pattern from the pattern section, yet each pattern must be enlarged before using. The book does not instruct readers on how to enlarge the patterns, and readers may not know to do so since there are no grids to enable hand enlarging, and each one needs a different enlargement percentage, making this a shortcoming of the book. A table of contents, index, and bookand website resources complete the additional sections of the book. Reviewer: Barbara Wheatley
School Library Journal

Gr 1-3- Each of these titles describes the history and traditions associated with these holidays, and then presents eight related crafts. Chinese New Year includes instructions for dancing dragon puppets, red gift envelopes, and Chinese lanterns; Day of the Dead gives directions for making paper marigolds, skull masks, skeletons, and window banners. The crafts contain materials lists and color photos of the steps and of the finished product. The directions are easy to follow, and enlargeable patterns are provided. These titles would make good additions to collections in need of cultural materials.-G. Alyssa Parkinson, Highland Township Library, MI
