Opening the eyes of young children 23 Dec. 2008
By Viv - Published on
Format: Paperback
My son and I went to a restaurant that it is full of Frida's paintings. He did not like Frida's face expressions in the paintings and said: "that woman is very angry". This book helped my son to understand how artists paint their own reality and in Frida's case, she showed her physical pain in her paintings (it was easy to understand for him how he also chooses specific colors when he paints, and those colors represent his emotional stage). It was a good conversation starter for my son and me (he is seven) about how life can be very hard for some people, but still they can get the best out of it - including such colorful paintings as a result of a difficult life and physical pain. I recommend it to all parents that want to show to their young children the strength of women, the art of women, and the importance of expressing yourself in art forms. I

Spanish Version 19 Jan. 2007
By B. Buddenhagen - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I own the Spanish version of this book, and I love it. So do all my students - I teach Preschool Spanish (ages 3-6). My 5 year old daughter is an artist and she loves the vivid colors and imaginative characters that follow Frida through her life. The children I teach do not know Spanish, but they are able to look at the pictures and understand the story. They regularly request this book and enjoy looking for the 'spooky' characters.

Beautiful, touching story and intriguing artwork 1 Dec. 2011
By lmorasax - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for my 8 year old niece who is learning Spanish. I just received the book and I think it is going to be just perfect. The story depicts the life of Frida and how she finds refuge from her solitude and, later, her pain, in her art. The art in the book is absolutely beautiful. I am sure parents reading it to their children will also thoroughly enjoy it. The level of Spanish is easy enough for early learners (yet there are several sentences on some pages, to help make it challenging, as well), yet the book is sophisticated enough not to bore slightly older children.

My niece is really into fairies, and I think the magic/mystical nature of the images and their slight darkness will really capture her attention. The story is also a nice lesson in sympathy for the sick and disabled. In general, a great book for Spanish learners. The book may not be as suitable for younger, native Spanish-speaking children, as the art is a tad dark, even though they would understand the language aspect at an earlier age. (It certainly isn't at all disturbing, though. I personally find it very intriguing.) I think this would be a great book for children around 5 years of age and older.

beautiful book, esp for adults 4 Jun. 2010
By m in nyc - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
i got this when my son was around 2.5 or 3 years old. it's a very beautiful book and he enjoyed it, but he had a lot of questions about about the magical, mystical parts and frida's emotions that maybe could have been answered better if he were a little older. i guess i'd say this is a book i enjoy more than he does at this stage. still glad that i bought it, though.

Beautiful! 4 Mar. 2011
By WillowGirl - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love the art in this book, the little skeleton doll makes me smile. All of the little characters that follow along with Frida are amusing even if a bit haunting. But I love the faces in the moon, on the tomato . . The illustrations are rich with character. It's one of those books that I like so much I want more than one copy. ;-)
