Funny bones is about the Mexican heritage of Jose Guadalupe Posada who is know as a political cartoonist. He had different ways of portraying politicians. This book would be great to use in the upper grades in history and geography to learn about there heritage and they ways of their politics. ( )

Funny Bones is a comical book that focuses on the different political waves throughout the Mexican heritage. As Jose Guadalupe drew different political cartoons that continued to aggravate the different politicians and continued to be loved by the population. Students can connect to this book in its presentation of multicultural experiences and history lessons. ( )

A picture book biography of José Guadalupe (Lupe) Posada, who was an artist who drew political cartoons in country that did not have very much freedom of speech. This could be used for 4th grade or older to teach about biographies in a fun way. The book is full of colorful illustrations. ( )

This book was very informational about the Mexican culture. It provided many definitions for words that are popular amongst the culture, while also telling a story of a family who struggled after a terrible flood in 1888. I recommend it for the grades above second, or third, because it is a bit wordy. ( )

This book tells the story of José Guadalupe Posada and how he learned to make art. Along the way, it describes the processes of various art styles, such as lithography, engraving, and etching. The book also explores what the meaning behind some of the Calaveras, which Posada created, may have been. ( )
