After a bout with polio and an accident as a teenager, Frida Kahlo was left unable to walk and suffering permanent pain. She began painting from her bed, creating self-portraits, which show her pain and grief, but also her passion for life and instinct for survival. Her distinctive art style would eventually make her one of the most famous artists of the twentieth century. Babies and toddlers will love to snuggle as you read to them the engaging story of this fascinating painter, and will also enjoy exploring the stylish and quirky illustrations of this sturdy board book on their own.
The My First - Little People, BIG DREAMS series takes the biographies from the popular Little People, BIG DREAMS picture book series and adapts them for younger reader. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream!
