Many cultures have celebrations that commemorate their ancestors. Mexico's celebration, los Dias de Muertos, the Days of the Dead, can be like a carnival. This author and photographer capture the spirit of this vibrant holiday with vivid prose and brilliant full color photographs.
Two books in one! Part of the book follows Mexican-American twins who are participating in the Day of the Dead in their new country while another part gives factual information on the history of the holiday. Good for reports.
A look at Columbus' life and his role as both an explorer and an invader of the West Indies. Beginning readers writing their first reports may find this book and the others in the Carolrhoda on My Own Books series meet their needs perfectly. However, it does not include maps of the voyages.
