Readers explore an illustrated world illuminating the traditions and history of Day of the Dead through a series of mazes, puzzles and activities, using press out forms to create shrines and masks which can be decorated with the stickers included in the book, preparing readers young and old to celebrate this vibrant and increasingly popular holiday.


What Is an Ofrenda?

An ofrenda is an altar or shrine built to welcome the souls returning to visit their loved ones during the Day of the Dead. Ofrendas are stocked with food and drinks, which the departed will need after their journey from the afterworld, and decorated with candles, flowers, photographs of the dead, and papel picado (decorative paper banners).

You can construct your very own ofrenda with the press-out pieces in this book. The activities will give you ideas about what types of offerings to make and how to decorate your ofrenda.
