" Being a picture book for children, this doesn't go into the detail of Frida's life, but nonetheless, it is a useful snapshot of a time in her life. Beautifully illustrated. " said.

" My second grade students are studying artists of Mexico. I read this book to them in class to reinforce Kahlo'd importance as a feminist icon and they absolutely loved it. Especially the girls. When I showed them her photograph at the end of the book, there was a collective gasp around the room. "She's so beautiful!!" they said. This book inspires bravery to overcome all obstacles; and, I think, is especially important for girls in today's world. " said.

"How many books do we need to keep the name and work of Frida alive? Just one more, I say. This series, world-acclaimed, with millions reading all the books by Anholt, is an interesting take on artists: The artist and one (actual) child who has interacted with her. In this case it is Mariana, who is scared to have her portrait painted by Kahlo. Kahlo invites her in, shows her her menagerie of animals, her collection of amazing art, her skeletons, and tells of the accident that nearly killed her, a time in which she was very scared, of course. And has Mariana meet her “frog-toad” (Diego Rivera). It’s not a biography, we have lots of those; it’s a glimpse into the life of the artist through the perspective of one child, and I liked it.
