When Frida was a teenager, an accident changed her life forever. Unable to walk, she began painting from her bed. Her self-portraits, which show her pain and grief, but also her passion for life and instinct for survival, have made her one of the most famous artists of the twentieth century.
Babies and toddlers will love to snuggle with their own little Frida as you read to them the engaging story of this fascinating painter, and will also enjoy exploring the modern and quirky illustrations of this sturdy board book on their own. Then they can play 'artist' with their Frida doll, dressed in her signature bold style, in a light blue traditional skirt and red shirt with a green satin bow tied through her braided updo.
