Day of the Dead Activity Book {Giveaway} - SpanglishBaby.com

I first found the Day of the Dead Activity Book last month when I was browsing on Amazon for Día de Muertos books to add to the round up I was putting together. I totally based a book by its cover and, loving what I could see, I immediately added it to my cart and had it within days in my mailbox.

This is one impulse buy I don’t regret.

Karl Jones, author, and Steve Simpson, illustrator, just released this book this year and we’re thrilled they did. The intro offers a concise, yet precise, and beautifully illustrated description of what Day of the Dead, as celebrated in México, and ofrendas are.

The rest of the pages are filled with activities, recipes, crafts, coloring pages, paper figures and even stickers — all with colorful and lively illustrations by Steve Simpson.

This is certainly a book that’s meant to be dug into, torn and scribbled all over, so I might just need to buy another one because it feels and looks like something I want to keep around even as a collectible.
