A very general overview of the life and works of Frieda Kalho. The illustrations are the better part of this work, depicting bright colors reminiscent of Mexican folk art.

A simple but sparkling picture book about the time in Frida Kahlo's life when she began to blossom into an artist. She is lonely in the foreign city of San Francisco and this is the impetus for her to follow her artistic passion.

B I think it's an important book because it attempts to tell us about her coming into her own with her first well known painting and it lovingly, simply explains the iconic relationship she had with Diego Rivera.

Frida was married to a very famous artist from Mexico. They moved to San Francisco and she became lost. Her husband was so well-known and everyone paid attention to him, but she felt out of place. Eventually, Frida found her voice and created many beloved paintings. This book is about Frida coming out of her shell and finding herself. This would be great for a Biography Day. ( )

Frida Kahlo is a wonderful historical figure to teach children about. Her artwork endeavors to this day and is a wonderful hommage to herself and her culture. Me, Frida, is a great way to introduce children to her artwork, and the artwork of her husband Diego Rivera.
