My Recommendation

I don't read a ton of children's books, but I'm obsessed with Frida Kahlo, so I wanted to check this one out. Brownridge does an incredible job summarizing Kahlo's life and career in easy-to-understand language that's perfect for young readers. Her illustrations are fantastic and do a lot to evoke Kahlo's unique style. I also loved that she included small replications of Kahlo's works throughout the story so that readers can get acquainted with her art. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to introduce their kids to art done by an amazingly talented woman of color.
