Professional reviews

"Reviewing an audiobook of less than 20 words is a difficult task--even one featuring the colorful Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Adriana Sananes's narration of this book in both English and Spanish is precise, her pacing leisurely, her voice quiet. She's the quintessential unobtrusive narrator. Given that author/illustrator Yuyi Morales won a Caldecott Honor Medal for her illustrations, how much better it would be to have this recording as a read-along. Poring over the book while listening will make this book much more vivid for young listeners. A short biography of the artist concludes the production. For the audio-only production, this is the meat of the experience. A.R. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
