And no wonder -- they've been cooped up the whole year long and now they're ready to party. Watch the calaveras shake, rattle, and roll as they celebrate the biggest event of the graveyard's social calendar!

Mexico's Day of the Dead fascinates kids -- whether for its joyful celebration or its unusual traditions. With fantastic illustrations and a wild and fanciful poem, Luis San Vicente captures the spirit of this marvelous holiday. A brief essay, directed toward young readers, explains this important day -- and the fun things kids can do to join in the festivities.
