Viva Frida by Yuyi Morales


I fell in love with the artistry of artist and children's book author and illustrator Yuyi Morales years ago. I am always on the look out for culturally relevant books to read to my kids and one of our favorites is "Just in Case". We were very excited to see that she has a big list of other books that are just as funny and as visually stunning as the first one we read.

When I heard that Yuyi Morales was working on a book about Frida Kahlo, well I was a little bit excited. The book is now out. Yuyi has mixed her own signature drawing and paintings with her skills in doll making. The cover alone is amazing but the photos and drawings inside are absolutely breathtaking.

Seriously, I can't even handle how much I love this whole book. I want every page framed and hanging on my wall.
