This is a biography about Diego Rivera a famous Mexican artist. I enjoyed the story from his childhood to his adult life, that the book was presented both in English and Spanish and the great illustrations which really gave the book character. I only removed half a star because of the fact that many of the sentences were overly simple which broke up the story and stuck out to me. ( )

I think that this book is very good for young children to be read to. It gives you a few details about his childhood and inspiration for is artworks. I also liked the fact that everything was translated into spanish after every passage or so. If I were to change anything it would be to give a little more background of Diego as a whole. There was definitely a lot there like both him and his brother falling ill and going entering an art school, but maybe a tiny bit more. ( )

This is a great book and it shows the text in English and Spanish. Diego was born in Guanajuato and had a twin brother that died of a sickness when they were young. Diego felt alone throughout life and became ill. His loving parents found an Indian healer to try and help Diego overcome this sickness. She took him to her hut that was filled with magical things that helped people from all over the country. While staying at the healers hut he begin to get better and played with and learned about many different animals. He remained healthy and was able to return home. When he returned his parent gifted him with colored chalk that he used to draw art everywhere you could imagine. He didn't do to well at school because he could not keep his mind off of art. He started art school but thought it was boring to draw what they put in front of him so he decided to draw whatever he saw. He painted realistic events including happy and sad times. Diego traveled the world to bring his ideas back to Mexico. Diego Rivera helped change the meaning of art by making Mexico proud of the murals he painted that told the story about their life. ( )
