Highly recommended! Gives some history on the festival, explains the art & culture, how to set up an offering (ofrenda) alter, and even provides some popular recipies. I only wish the history behind the Day of the Dead festival was more extensive but this is a wonderful overview. 5 stars.

I'm a Spanish teacher and I am not from Mexico, so I do not know much about the Day of the Dead. This book has everything anybody could ever want to know about this celebration. It was very helpful into my research and lesson planning.
