Description

Frida Kahlo and Her Animalitos, written by Monica Brown and illustrated by John Parra, is based on the life of one of the world's most influential painters, Frida Kahlo, and the animals that inspired her art and life. The fascinating Mexican artist Frida Kahlo is remembered for her self-portraits, her dramatic works featuring bold and vibrant colors. Her work brought attention to Mexican and indigenous culture and she is also renowned for her works celebrating the female form. Brown's story recounts Frida's beloved pets-two monkeys, a parrot, three dogs, two turkeys, an eagle, a black cat, and a fawn-and playfully considers how Frida embodied many wonderful characteristics of each animal.

Professional reviews

"Lively animal sounds and the soothing voice of narrator Adriana Sananes make this a joyful listen for kids. Episodes in the life of iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo show her happy times as a young girl and her difficult time after the bus accident that left her permanently injured. Through it all, Frida's many pets and creatures, such as Bonito the parrot and her spider monkeys, named Fulang Chang and Caimito de Guayabal, were a source of inspiration and comfort. Instead of focusing heavily on the depressing aspects of the artist's life, the author uses her ANIMALITOS to highlight Frida's spirit, curiosity, and imagination. An author's note explains Kahlo's artistic influence and lists the works in which her ANIMALITOS appear, so parents can pair this audiobook with images of Kahlo's paintings.
