Beto & the Bone Dance
Gina Freschet (au) (il). The skeletons have started to appear . . . Today begins Beto’s favorite holiday, “el Dia de los Muertos” -- the Day of the Dead. He & his father have much to prepare. First they will make an altar in honor of Beto’s recently departed abuela (his grandmother), filled with foods & flowers & other things she loved in life. Then later it’s off to the cemetery, where at midnight, this one time of year, all the dead souls will come to visit the living. It’s a joyous occasion, but also one that poses a dilemma for Beto, who can’t seem to find a perfect gift for Abuela’s altar. The answer awaits in an unexpected place, & finding it will be well worth the trip. Author & illustrator Gina Freschet divides her time between N.Y. City & Oaxaca, Mexico.
