Me, Frida

Me, Frida - Amy Novesky, David Diaz An informative look at the beginning of Frida Kahlo's life as an artist. Me, Frida specifically tells of the journey to San Francisco that Frida and her husband, artist Diego Rivera experienced when Diego was commissioned to paint a mural for the city. Illustrations by Caldecott Medal winner David Diaz, invite one to consider the magical realism of an artist's imagination, and faithfully replicate the essence of these two famous Mexican artists. A short author's note at the back, fills in more details. A lovely picture book to introduce young readers to a notable woman artist.
