In miqui yoli / El muerto vivo

Grownups and kids will both find a lot to like in this bilingual (Spanish/Nahuatl – no English) illustrated folktale from Milpa Alta about a man who dies and comes back to life. The Spanish text is perfect for early readers, and the parallel Nahuatl text is a great learning resource for beginning students.

“This is the first volume in the collection Tell me how Milpa Alta used to be. Its goal is to contribute to the preservation of the words of our ancestors. Let’s remember that, as long as a language lives on, its particular way of looking at the world lives on too.”
