A charming sing-along (or read-along) app based on the song (and board book) "Skeletitos" with the catchy chorus, "tumba-laca, tumba-laca, tumba, tumba..."  It's a song about Dia de los Muertos, skeletons, and telling time and the illustrations (as well as the song) are full of beautiful Latinx cultural elements. Perfect for this time of year!  My only complaint about the app is the English narrators' pronunciation of "skeletito" is Anglicized and I find it rather jarring and much prefer the Spanish option!  There is also a "read to me" and "read it myself" option (also both in English and Spanish) in case you prefer to not hear the music.  Warning: the music is quite a persistent "earworm" and you'll be singing it to yourself for the rest of the day!
