4.25 / 7.0

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.
