Review quote

Six months ago, Fernando's uncle passed away. Now it is time to honor Tío Fernando during the Day of the Dead celebration. Because the child is named after his favorite uncle, he wishes to make this day an especially memorable one. Youngsters who are unfamiliar with this custom will get a feel for what 'Day of the Dead' means to many Hispanics of Mexican or Central American heritage as Nando tells of his and his mother's preparations. Illustrations are done in soft watercolors that complement the text nicely.--School Library Journal
