This book explores the life and history of Diego Rivera. He was a passionate artist and proud of his Mexican heritage. Through his art, he told stories of Mexico's rich history. I liked how the author inserted questions asking what would Diego Rivera paint now if he was alive today. ( )

This book is about a boy who grows up in Mexico and he travels the world because of his interests. For example, he goes to Paris to have experimental methods of painting.

Diego Rivera was a Mexican artist known for his mural art.

Diego Rivera: His World and Ours was a very informative autobiography of Diego Rivera’s life. Although children do not usually want to pick up a book and read about an artist’s life, but this book creates an engaging read. To begin with, the illustrations are part of what makes this book so great. The people look like little cartoon characters that make the pages interesting and fun to view along with the facts in the text. The illustrations looked like paintings, which is smart because Diego Rivera was a painter. Each page was like a mural that blended greatly with the representation of his life. In addition, these paintings are a fun way to represent the historical culture of this time period. They all added to the main idea of this book, which was to inform readers about Diego’s life as a famous, Mexican painter. The setup of the book was another reason why it was enjoyable to read. The author wrote most of the book on Diego’s life, but the end was about what Diego might think and paint if he were still alive today. For example, “Maybe Diego would paint shops at the mall as he painted street vendors selling flores.” This was interesting, thought-provoking, and very unique! ( )

In this book the installations greatly help to add to the information presented. The book talks all about Diego Rivera and his art. The pictures help student understand the kind of art that Diego did. The illustrations also help to further explain some of the location and terminology used in the book, such as a cubism picture is displayed on the page where they discuss cubism. ( )
