As part of the critically acclaimed series of children's books, Little People, Big Dreams, the book here tells the story of the world-renowned Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo. When Frida was a teenager, a violent traffic accident changed her life forever. Unable to walk, she began to paint from her bed. Her self-portraits, which show her pain and sorrow, but also her passion for life and instinct for survival, have made her one of the most famous artists of the twentieth century.
The book about Frida Kahlo is written by Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara, Spanish author and creative director. Little People, BIG DREAMS is a bestselling series of books and educational games for children, and the hardback editions – like this one – offer extended narratives for beginning readers.
The book is densely illustrated and at the back provides additional facts - including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of Frida Kahlo's life.
