Parrots, trees, deer, family members, friends, flowers, the sun and the moon-Frida Kahlo's use of symbolism and colour wonderfully lends itself to teaching children about the artistic process. Through illustrations of her work and photographs of Kahlo and her family, children are encouraged to learn about her life, artworks and important relationships.
An engaging text and gorgeous reproductions call attention to Kahlo's use of bold colour and natural imagery, as well as her ingenious use of perspective, collage and varying styles. Children will learn much about creative self-expression through this beautifully designed and insightful book about Kahlo's life and work.
