Description

Three starred reviews!
A Pura Belpré Illustrator Honor Book
A Chicago Public Library Best Book

A family remembers their beloved pet dog through the traditions of Día de Muertos in this "gorgeous, deeply touching exploration of grief and remembrance" (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) from Pura Belpré Honor-winning team Xelena González and Adriana M. Garcia.

A child and their family observe the customs of Día de los Angelitos, one of the ritual celebrations of Día de Muertos, to celebrate the life of their beloved dog who passed away. They build a thoughtful ofrenda to help lead the pet's soul home and help the little one process their grief in this moving reminder that loved ones are never really gone if we take the time to remember them.
