Dia de los Muertos Books

These are the books I read to my students as we were learning about the Day of the Dead. These books are written in both English and Spanish so as to allow for concept development as well as rich vocabulary development in both languages.
  • The book "El Dia de Muertos" is a great rhyming book. 
  • "Felipa y el Dia de los Muertos" as well as "El Espiritu de Tio Fernando" are two stories about two kids learning point of view of the celebration.
  • "Days of the Dead" and "Celebrate" are both non-fiction books that I used to show my students actual altars, calaveras as well as decorated cemetary plots.
These books lent themselves to our study of traditions as we have been focusing on Social Studies standard
1.5.1 and 1.5.3.
