The Story Of Frida Kahlo

Do you love biographies? Do you have a kid in your life who loves them too? If so, then this gorgeous chapter book is perfect. I have read a little bit about the artist Frida Kahlo, but this mini biography is informative, has cute artwork and the style of writing isn’t dumbed down.

This book features Jump In The Think Tank, a side blurb that gives you a topic within the story to think about regarding your own life and how you may be able to relate to Frida. Also, has the When feature which provides a timeline of events to see where you are at in the story. There is also, a Myth & Fact section to help you determine what is true. I like that bigger vocabulary words are bolded and of course there’s a nice glossary at the back to help know what those words mean.

Frida Kahlo was a Mexican artist from the early 1900’s who struggled with health challenges, but didn’t let that her stop her from drawing for artwork. Her story is one of courage and standing out. Frida was a woman ahead of her time.

I received my complimentary copy of The Story Of Frida Kahlo by Susan B. Katz from Rockridge Press, care of Callisto Publisher’s Club. The views are mine and of my own choice. If you love artwork, biographies, women empowerment books this little gem would make a great gift for a special child in your life. Even as an adult I enjoyed this informative chapter book.
