Books | Day of the Dead

“Vibrant paper collage illustrations pay homage to the Day of the Dead while bilingual text describes the holiday’s traditions: “We celebrate our ancestors on the Day of the Dead/ with offerings of flowers, sugar skulls, and bread.” A family prepares a meal and later dances in a graveyard as a friendly white skeleton strums a guitar. The festive colors and imagery in Barner’s cut-paper collages encapsulate the celebratory and memorial nature of the holiday; a concluding note offers additional details.”
