    This is a children's book about the life of Frida Kahlo.The book tells the story of Frida, a Mexican artist well known for her self-portraits as well as her marriage to Mexican painter Diego Rivera. It also makes emphasis on the large number of pets she had and loved.The book contains beautiful illustrations and at the end of it there's a short biography of her life targeted to a more adult audience.The main story is kept very light but discussing all the pain and difficulties she faced throug [...]

    The Frida Kahlo and Her Animalitos is a wonderful children's story book that not only young readers will got to enjoy, but adults also will appreciate this. I'm not quite familiar with Frida's biography, although I knew some of her famous paintings such as the The Two Fridas, The Wounded Deer, and The Broken Column. If ever this would be available in local bookstores here in my country, I'll definitely purchase copies of this charming book to give to my niece and godchildren.

    This was a really awesome way to show kids how Frida Khalos life was. It’s so cute and the drawings are so gorgeous! Definitely recommend this.

    AWEI just loved this and all of her little pets. Short little read about young Frida Kahlo and her love for animals. I enjoyed the illustrations of her pets, using bold and bright colors like she used in her own artwork. We see two monkeys, a parrot, three dogs, two turkeys, an eagle, a black cat (my favorite of course), and a fawn. (second favorite)-Turkeys are believed to have been sacred in ancient Mexican cultures. They are were viewed as "jewelled birds". A quote from the book, "They (turke [...]

    This is a gorgeously illustrated, inspiring children's book on the life of Frida Kahlo. I am familiar with her art work and knew she loved animals, but I did not know about her illnesses and how much her animals inspired her. When Frida had an illness, she took that time to be creative and create art, even as a child. This book is an excellent way to expose children to a creative and famous artist. Fabulous book! Thank you to Monica Brown, the publisher, and Netgalley, for the opportunity to rea [...]

    Frida was an amazing woman and I loved this little book! The artwork was beautiful and vibrant enough to keep any child’s attention. I loved how her personality was described through comparisons to her pets. It was also nice that there was a more mature synopsis of her life at the end of the book.Thank you to NetGalley and NorthSouth Books for providing me with an ARC in exchange for this honest review!

    3.5 stars.A pretty semi-biography of Frida Kahlo, specifically focusing on her pets and other animal friends and how they inspired much of her work. The paintings throughout are very lovely, and I loved the use of bold colors that conveys some of Kahlo’s color choices.The actual biography of Kahlo herself was a bit weak, as there were many specific facts left out in the story; however, there is a brief page at the end of the book that does provide some more facts about her life, but still not [...]

    This is a lovely book, I loved the historical nature and how it told the story of this remarkable lady. The images were great and they really helped tell the story - definitely one I'd recommend - 5 stars!

    This book is a short biographical insight into the life and works of Frida Kahlo. I love Kahlo's work and when I saw this book on Netgalley, I had no alternative but to read it.Kahlo (1907-1954) was a Mexican artist, famous for her paintings using bold vibrant colours. Kahlo in her teens had a very serious accident that left her with multiple fractures of the spine, collarbone and ribs, a shattered pelvis, broken foot and a dislocated shoulder. This accident resulted in her having to undergo app [...]

    I particularly like the idea of a book purely centred on well-known influential artist Frida Kahlo, and her beloved pets. It follows her rise from a creative youngster with a wonderful imagination to the influential artist that she became. The perspective of this book really suits young readers, as rather than focusing on her life story on the whole, the inclusion of her animals and how they fit into her life is perhaps more interesting to young ones. The illustrations are lovely, and very much [...]

    I'm not a fan of Frida Kahlo. I have nothing against her, but I get annoyed at the fascination first-world women have with her. I guess I should live and let live, but I'm judgemental like that. I cannot help it.Having said that, I came across this book on NetGalley and found it beautiful. It is a biography of Frida with a strong emphasis on her relationship with her animals. There are monkeys, parrots, dogs and others. They're useful vehicles, skillfully used to guide you through Frida's life.T [...]

    If I just wanted to introduce children to the idea of Frida Kahlo, this might be a good way to do this. I would never have though of focusing on her animals, but whatever works.However, there are no examples of her actual paintings anywhere in the book, although there is a brief, more detailed bio at the end of the book.Without the images of the paintings, it makes me wonder if a child, reading this book, would understand how important this artist was, or what she went through in her life, or an [...]

    I like how the author is telling a very condensed biography of Frida Kahlo through the pets she had throughout her life; it shows a great deal of originality which is in a way very artistic. The story is engaging and the pictures are colorful and that makes this book’s presentation very appealing to elementary teachers that are interested on bringing art into the classroom. I can see how this book could really inspire kids to try out their hand at drawing and painting because it focuses on Fri [...]

    Frida Kahlo and Her Animalitos by Monica Brown. Illustrated by John Parra. North South Books Inc.This is a sweet introduction to Kahlo’s art via her animals, a condensed version of her relatively short life written and illustrated for any child’s appreciation. Highly recommend. Thanks to NetGalley and North South Books Inc. for providing this ebook for review.

    The author presents a glimpse into the life of Mexico's most well-known female painter. The narrative is framed by the animals Kahlo had as pets and their influence--and presence--in her artwork.

    A gorgeous look at one of the most fascinating artists in history and her sacred bond with her animal companions.

    This captivating real-life children's story chronicles Frida Kahlo's momentous journey with vibrant images to highlight her imaginative work that we continue to cherish for future generations!

    This book sent me into research mode: Xolo dogs, Kahlo's marriage to Diego, her physical ailments, and her upbringing.Describing the characteristics of her pets and her personal qualities brings the biography to younger readers.I found several of her numerous paintings on and fridakahlo/, but only "Self-Portrait with Monkey" is one I'd show to young students. Although not mentioned in the main text, the US Postage stamp of her would also be appropriate.This presentation of her life could be use [...]

    I received an ebook copy of this via Netgalley. This is a beautifully illustrated book, which feels fitting for a children's picture book about an artist. I was hoping this would be a good storytime book, but it is a bit too wordy to be used for the really young kids who attend our storytime. It would probably work well as a read aloud for Hispanic Heritage month for school age children.It is very pretty and careful to be a bit spare with some of the harder details of Frida's life. There is a bi [...]

    A biography of Frida Kahlo focusing on her love of animals, particularly her pets - a deer, dogs, a cat, 2 monkeys, a parrot, even turkeys. They inspired some of her art and were her friends. There seems to be a new picture book about Frida Kahlo every year or so. It’s hard to tell her story in a way children would enjoy and this is a good hook. The author was vague about Frida’s illnesses and her accident (which is good). I also like the inclusion of a photograph at the end of Frida and one [...]

    Let it be known that I love animals, especially dogs. I knew of Frida Kahlo's love of dogs, but not necessarily of all the animals she owned during her lifetime. Brown's unique storytelling technique of portraying Kahlo's life and personality, as well as her art, through her animals was something that brought a unique perspective to this picture book. The way this picture book showed animals helping her through her pain and her illnesses was also a message I thought positive, and important for c [...]

    If I had a child I would buy this book for him/her. The illustrations are beautiful and it's a great introduction to Frida Kahlo's work and life for kids. I didn't even knew she had that many animals.

    Beautiful artwork, and I loved learning about Frida. I actually didn't know a lot about her, but the woman loved keeping some exotic pets! Plus, due to her frequent illnesses, she found her love of art since she was often kept to her bed.

    This was a very entertaining story of Frida Kahlo and the animals in her life. How they lent her their happiness when she had little of her own. How they would constantly show up in her paintings. I think this is a very well done picture book of a remarkable artist. I like that they add a real life picture to Frida at the end. I wish they had also added some of her paintings that are talked about in the story and end matter.

    What an excellent book. Looking at Frida Kahlo through her animals was an excellent idea. The details in the illustrations were very mindfully done, even showing one of Frida's custom made boots on one picture (and the wheel chair on the facing page).

    Lovely and thoughtful, this picture book is a wonderful introduction to Kahlo, as well as being a great tool in teaching kids about how all kinds of relationships can be special and important, even those we have with our pets!
