Book five in the Canticos series of bilingual nursery rhymes - perfect for Halloween and Day of the Dead. Little Skeletons / Esqueletitos is a Day of the Dead-themed take on the traditional Latin American song Los Esqueletitos (Calaveras) Salen de la Tumba, with art inspired by the famous Mexican Calavera woodcut prints. A moveable clock at the start of the book will tempt little fingers to change the time along with the story, while increasing numbers of tiny skeletons beg to be counted. Like other books in the Canticos series, Little Skeletons / Esqueletitos has a unique, interactive, accordion design that presents the Spanish version of the book in one direction and its English adaptation in the other. Children can sing the song straight through, move the hands of the clock, or shut off the lights to watch the little skeletons glow in the dark.
