Horn Book Review

'Día de Muertos', the holiday on which Mexicans of Indian background honor dead relatives and friends, is described from the perspective of two Mexican-American sisters. An accessible text and color photographs depict the decorating, cooking, and religious festivities associated with the celebration. The volume is a good addition to multicultural nonfiction books.
