Me, Frida - Amy Novesky and David Diaz

Most people remember Frida Kahlo as a strong, outspoken, and fiercely independent woman. But when she first moved from Mexico to San Francisco, Frida felt overwhelmed and overshadowed by her husband Diego Rivera’s artistic success. In ME, FRIDA (Abrams, $16.95), Amy Novesky tells the story of how Frida grew comfortable in a new place and confident in her own ability to paint. Novesky’s subtle descriptions are brought to life by David Diaz’s pictures, whose brilliant colors and deep, dramatic lines capture Frida’s spirit. Ages 5-8. AJK
