Dear Librarians,
For those of you who have computer library programs, we'd like to announce
that our new issue about Day of the Dead in Mexico is ready:
Welcome to our new issue of Mexico Newsletter.

This issue is dedicated to one of Mexico's most impressive and moving
celebrations: Day of the Dead or El Día de los Muertos.

We hope you enjoy reading about how this ritual is magnificently prepared
and presented in Janitzio Michoacan.

We are also including a special page in which we talk about the common
misconceptions and prejudice surrounding Day of the Dead.

I'm sure you'll enjoy reading the suggested classroom activities, submitted
by teachers, and we invite you to send your ideas and projects.

Remember, every day we will have new information, articles, riddles, songs, don't forget to come back tomorrow!

Feliz Día de los Muertos!
