Bilingual text, accompanied by colorful photographs, explores the famous artist’s life, and illuminates the laughter, love, and tragedy that influenced her work.
This book is great for those wanting to learn Spanish/English, as it has both languages written for a few simple words on each page of the book. The illustrations are very creative and beautiful, but I wish there had been more about Frida. If felt a little slow and more just like a book to help beginners learn Spanish or English.
