“Strong women. May we know them. May we raise them. May we be them.” – Unknown
Frida Kahlo endured many setbacks in life, yet she always found a zest for life. A way to celebrate and relate through her pain using art. Frida loved children and wanted them dearly, so a picture book, I imagine would have made her heart sing.
The care and beauty that went into this book is breathtaking. Yuyi Morales created a Frida puppet and used her to create each beautiful scene. There is such care in every detail from her pets to her wardrobe.
The beauty and celebration of Frida isn’t the only reason to love this book, it’s also bilingual.
