Viva Frida: 10/12/16
Viva Frida by Yuyi Morales is a 2015 Caldecott Honor and Pura Belpré winner for illustrations. It's a picture book celebration of the life, art, and philosophy of Frida Kahlo.
Tim O'Meara photographed a Frida doll and other toys and models to illustrate Yuyi Morales's words. The final illustrations, go from straight up model photography to multimedia collage.
Visually it's a stunning and memorable book. Textually it's very simple. Really it should be read as a starting point to introduce children to Frida Kahlo. By itself it's not going to teach much beyond giving the impression that she was artist.
