Frida Kahlo and her Animalitos

Frida Kahlo and her Animalitos by Monica Brown, illustrated by John Parra focuses on the artist’s animals and their presence in her paintings. They clearly influenced her design and color choices and were a source of inspiration throughout her career. From early childhood Frida suffered from a variety of serious illnesses. The wide variety of animalitos gave her great comfort. The beautiful illustrations are evocative of Mexican folk art and Kahlo’s style. (Biography)
