Comments Pablo Remembers

  • S10_Kelly

    Holidays and traditions from around the world are great for children to learn about. The author, George Ancone, does a wonderful job taking the reader through a photographic journey of a three-day celebration that takes place in Mexico, The Day of the Dead. The photographs and descriptions really bring this holiday to life, for those who may not celebrate this holiday. In addition, the author goes to great efforts to explain the importance and the symbolisms of the preperations and traditions th [...]

    I think this book would be a great tool in a classroom for students to learn about diversity and various cultures across the world. If used in a classroom, this can also be a great tool to teach students about the Spanish language. I also like that the illustrations in this book have actual people in them to give readers a chance to visualize people like them, except celebrating a different day in the year. I think that in a classroom, the teacher could use this in a Language Arts class to teach [...]

    Published: 1993, Lothrop, Lee, & Shepard BooksAge: 6-9While Americans celebrate the scariness and hauntings of the dead on Halloween, Mexican Americans celebrate and honor the spirits of the dead on the Fiesta of the Day of the Dead. It would be interesting to compare the two so Mexicans can be in touch with their heritage and Americans can become familiar with the way a different culture celebrates a similar holiday. George Ancona uses photographs with nice borders and focuses on a boy name [...]

    The beautiful photographs in this book not only provide information about the festival of the Day of the Dead but also about life in this small town outside of Oaxaca, Mexico. Pablo, his three sisters and their parents are preparing to celebrate the Day of the Dead and are remembering Pablo's grandmother, who died two years ago. To prepare for the celebration, Pablo, his oldest sister, Shaula, and their parents take a bus to an open-air market in the neighboring city of Oaxaca (instead of drivin [...]

    This book is an important book to have in a classroom library because it paints a picture of another culture's traditions and allows students of a similar tradition to feel more at home. Students will be intrigued by the photographs in this book and be interested in learning even more about the Day of the Dead. Including cultural books like this one are very important when a teacher is striving for a culturally accepting classroom. I would suggest teachers accompany this book with an actual cele [...]

    This is such a great book about Día de los Muertos. This would be a really good book to share with a classroom on how different cultures celebrate the time around Halloween. Americans consider this time to dress in costumes, eat candy, and scare. The Mexican culture use this time to celebrate their loved ones who passed away. This book shows Pablo and his family preparing for this day and remembering his grandmother who passed away. The pictures in this book are great because it gives an inside [...]


  • Lindsey

    At this time, some of the images are a little outdated, since the book was published in 1993. However, it is a good source for information about the Day of the Dead.The theme, obviously, is Day of the Dead and how it is celebrated.This is mostly an informational book for non-Latinos, but I believe Latinos would also enjoy reminiscing about their own Day of the Dead celebrations. It might also be enjoyable to recognize shared aspects of the celebration, such as sugar skulls and decorating the alt [...]


  • Kathryn Eder

    This a great example of a multicultural book for children to learn about a different culture then their own. It follows a little boy who shows us how he remembers ones that have past on. He shows us how they prepare and how they celebrate the life of the ones that they have lost. It really helps the reader get a glimpse in the life of a little boy and the traditions he has learned through his parents.

    “Pablo Remembers: The Fiesta of the Day of the Dead” is an excellent children’s picture book to use to introduce or learn about Mexico's Day of the Dead. Through full-page and small color photographs, accompanied by text, photojournalist George Ancona tells the story of how one family honors their deceased relatives by observing the Day of the Dead in their village in Mexico.


  • Crystal

    This is an older title, but it's still relevant. As he has done with many other books, Ancona uses everyday pictures of people to share information about a topic. His pictures are always full of life and engaging. I enjoyed seeing how the family prepared for and celebrated the Day of the Dead.


  • J-Lynn

    George Ancona uses real photographs of a Mexican family who live near Oaxaca as they prepare for and celebrate the three day festival for The Day of the Dead or el Dia de los Muertos. The pictures tell a strong story of the traditions of this holiday.


  • Caroline

    A good resource, specially side by side with the Spanish version.
