Funny Bones:

Posada and his Day of the Dead Calaveras
by Duncan Tonatiuh



Have you seen the work of Duncan Tonatiuh? He wrote the amazing book Separate is Never Equal about the fight Sylvia Mendez and her family endured to end segregation in California schools.


His book, Funny Bones: Posada and his Day of the Dean Calaveras has won the
 2016 Robert F. Sibert Informational Book Medal and a Pura Belpre Illustrator award. 

This is a great informational book about Jose Guadalupe Posada.  He is the artist who created the Dia de los Muertos illustrations.  The book has both the historical illustrations and the work of Mr. Tonatiuh.



Great addition to your Dia de Los Muertos unit.  Check it out!
