Book Overview

You can always recognize a painting by Kahlo because she is in nearly all--with her black braided hair and colorful Mexican outfits. A brave woman who was an invalid most of her life, she transformed herself into a living work of art. As famous for her self-portraits and haunting imagery as she was for her marriage to another famous artist, Diego Rivera, this strong and courageous painter was inspired by the ancient culture and history of her beloved homeland, Mexico. Her paintings continue to inform and inspire popular culture around the world.

   Great educational books for early readers
My son absolutely LOVES the books. It's a great way for young kids to learn about history in a fun way." They're easy reads, so he goes thru them quick and feels really accomplished the more he reads.
   Includes nudes
The group was very interested in Frida, right up until they arrived at the nude paintings, they said. I don't know why this illustrator chose to include nude paintings in this book when there were so many other works by well-known artists. In one illustration, there's a huge breast in the foreground, while regular self portraits are in the background. As a teacher, I was very embarrassed and had to contact parents to apologize. However, I am not prude or for censoring, but there was no reason to include these in a kids’ book when other options were available.
   Fabulous Frida Kahlo Biography
This biography is an easy read for students, but it also is a really good book for anyone who would like a general overview of her life.
   The book gave a quick overview of Frida Kahlo's life.
Enjoy reading to books on notable people that are interesting and get to the point. As a senior with eyesight changing to become immersed in long books, it can be a challenge. The French language school has a bookaudible program, but cannot afford the monthly fees. Wish I could have danced. I catch what I can, when I can, he said.
   five star
In this book it is like something that you don't know what to say. At first, i thought these books were horrible, but when i read that first book, it changed my whole world! There is a show about the books, but they lie a little.
Just a list of facts. Disappointed with the service. I want a story about Frida not a fact sheet. She was a ballerina, didn't move me at all, and that was what Frida was. He talks about how he got there, how he moved a moving human.
   Wonderful story
This is a great intro story for a young person, Raymond said. While it leaves out some of the more colorful aspects of her life it doesn't forget how mischievous she was or how much her husband didn't get along with her. It's great to hear the story of how she created her own style of painting. Thanks to my daughter, I was able to expand those concepts and it was a great impromptu history lesson. Already, we have a book deal with Simon & Schuster.
   I read it and learned so much in a delightful way about this great artist. I will buy more from this series ...
Before I gave this book to my granddaughter, I read it and learned so much about this great artist. I will buy more and then pass on to the grand kids.
   Lots of information.
It's just that her life is full of excitement, Morgenthau said. It was her 2nd grader who read it multiple times because she wanted to know more. She kept going back and forth, sometimes taking notes, and at times had to look up words from dictionary. Lots of facts about this age group, too. I would recommend that people over 18 years old should be counselled on the dangers of drinking caffeinated soda.
