Teaching About Día de los Muertos
Día de los Muertos is one of the most popular topics on the Vamos a Leer blog. We’ve written numerous posts on lesson plans, fiction and non-fiction books, and other online resources that will help teachers explore this topic with their students.
For a list of relevant, exemplary books, see Kalyn Finnell’s Reading Roundup of “10 Children’s Books About Día de los Muertos.”
