This is a great book for students of any age, from Kinder +. The book describes Frida as her pets. The author uses the pets to describe how Frida was and how they helped her. This is a great book because it can be an introduction to a role model or books that tell about a person. ( )

This book explains how Frida would compare and contrast herself with different animals that she would always draw. The animals that she would draw were her pets and loved to imagine. The book also contains information of Frida's life that can be used in a classroom. It is not a usual just informative book, it tells a story. ( )

It is a beautifully told story of the incredible Frida Kahlo, but with a twist, as the author also tells the story of the animals that Frida kept as pets. The comparisons between the animals and Frida helps the reader to understand the creativity and passion inside of Frida. As a child Frida was playful like a cat, mischievous like her monkeys, had an imagination like her eagle, intelligent and sensitive like her turkeys and warm and loving like her dogs. Despite spending much of her life ill Frida was able to use all of these characteristics to create some of the most amazing art in the world. Using the bond between Frida and her animals to tell her story was an incredibly powerful way to explore the life of a fascinating woman. The illustrations in the book are colorful and bold just like Frida herself. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0735842698, Hardcover)

Frida Kahlo and Her Animalitos, written by Monica Brown and illustrated by John Parra, is based on the life of one of the world's most influential painters, Frida Kahlo, and the animals that inspired her art and life. 

The fascinating Mexican artist Frida Kahlo is remembered for her self-portraits, her dramatic works featuring bold and vibrant colors. Her work brought attention to Mexican and indigenous culture and she is also renowned for her works celebrating the female form.

Brown's story recounts Frida's beloved pets—two monkeys, a parrot, three dogs, two turkeys, an eagle, a black cat, and a fawn—and playfully considers how Frida embodied many wonderful characteristics of each animal.
