Little People Big Dreams: Frida Kahlo - 8.66 stars

Little People Big Dreams: Frida Kahlo by Isabel Sanchez Vegara.  This is part of a series of books featuring extraordinary women.  Other books in the series include Coco Chanel, Marie Curie, Maya Angelou, Audrey Hepburn, and Amelia Earhart.  These books are geared toward 4 to 7 year olds and give a brief summary of each woman's life and accomplishments.  In Frida Kahlo, we learned about her contracting polio as a child, the tragic bus accident she survived as a young woman, how she coped with her accident through painting and a little about her marriage to Diego Rivera.  It is a nice introduction to these amazing woman for younger children. 

Lourdes - 8 stars.  I don't like how Frida had polio and got into a car accident.  I like how she painted her pictures in bed by looking at her reflection in a mirror.  In some paintings she was sad and in some paintings she was happy.  A lot of them she was happy.

Finnegan - I give this 9 stars because I like how it explains Frida's life so that it doesn't get off topic and it doesn't dive too deep into the bad parts of her life because that wouldn't be appropriate for kids.  I didn't like how it didn't talk that much about her paintings.

Sabine - I give this 9 stars because I loved her paintings and how she got better and started painting more.  The bad part was that Frida got into a car accident, but I liked that she never gave up.  It would have been hard to walk around after she had polio.  I liked the painting where she painted herself standing by water.  I also liked the picture where she was sitting on a bench because I liked the background.
