Diego is a story telling the life of a famous Mexican painter named Diego Rivera. Diego was one of the best muralists in all of Mexico. This story tells about his life from the very beginning, covering his family life and his inspirations for becoming a painter. It is full of information and facts about his paintings and the many things he has contributed to the world of art. This book would be great to incorporate into the classroom, as it introduces autobiographies to students in an easy way. This book also contains many Mexican references, making it a good way to introduce some Mexican culture for diversity purposes. ( )

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. ( )
