Frida Kahlo (Revised Edition) (Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists) (Library Publishing) Questo libro bellissimo sia per adulti che per bambini, un ottimo modo per illustrare l arte ai pi piccoli,sicuramente lo consiglio a tutti Bellissime le illustrazioni. I am pleased with my purchase of this book I wanted something that not only I would love but something my kids could understand and enjoy as well I love all things Frida Kahlo but do not have much of her in my home library This is a lovely addition to it For the price I paid it was exactly what was expected Soft covera little flimsyonly a few pages long but the pictures were excellent and it is perfect for small children to look at Happily pleased with my purchase Homeschooling art has been one of my greatest homeschool successes Specifically, we instituted Artist of the Month as part of our homeschool curriculum Information learned stayed learned always a victory.First, I bought the Getting to Know the World s Greatest Artists book about our Artist of the Month We own 22 of these They are uniformly excellent Images featuring the artist s most famous work are interspersed with the artist s life story.Second, I bought poster board and those little Dover booklets of postcards featuring art by our Artist of the Month where available and Dover does carry a lot of them I let the kids go to town on making a poster of the Artist of the Month using these supplies The important point here was process not product, to get them to interact with the images, not to get them to produce the perfect poster This poster would then be on display throughout the month Previous months posters landed under my daughter s bed One day, she showed one of these posters to a friend I heard from the mom shortly thereafter Raquel says your daughter has pictures of naked ladies under her bed Picasso, I think Third, I bought books We were fond of the Smart About Art series Each book also features just one artist We have 8 of those These books are at a slightly higher reading level than the Getting to Know the World s Greatest Artists books, but only very slightly Colorful pages are even eye popping than those in the Getting to Know the World s Greatest Artists series.For Pablo Picasso and Leonardo da Vinci, the kids really liked the Ibi Lepscky books The titles are the same as the authors names The Picasso book is a particular favorite because of an image in which Picasso, devoid of art supplies as a child, paints his younger sister with egg yolk just before the family is due to leave for church services.Storybooks featuring the artists were always a big hit I can specifically recommend the following to round out your curriculum Laurence Anholt s books feature a story in which the artist interacts with a child There are vibrant images, but I wouldn t count on these books alone to provide an education about any one artists The books we own and love include Matisse The King of Color Cezanne and the Apple Boy Degas and the Little Dancer Camille and the Sunflowers Leonardo and the Flying Boy Picasso and the Girl with a Ponytail The Magical Garden of Claude MonetAlso consider Anholt s marvelous book Anholt s Artists Activity Book.James Mayhew wrote an excellent series in which our girl Katie interacts not with the artists but with the subjects of the paintings Outstanding storytelling, clever images Again, these books are a great supplement to a homeschool art curriculum, but I would not use them as stand alone books We own and love these Katie and the Sunflowers Katie and the Mona Lisa Katie and the British Artists Katie and the Starry Night Katie and the Spanish Princess Katie Meets the ImpressionistsGood Luck and Happy Homeschooling I held back stars because I take exception to this being called a paperback book It s like a magazine The content is ok but I wasn t expecting something the mailman could cram in my mailbox and he did It was rather bent up since it s a thin magazine not a paperback Discusses the life of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, including her childhood, her art, and her marriage to Diego Rivera I am only giving 2 stars because I absolutely love Friday but the book was a complete disappointment Lots of pictures yes but the softcover partI mean is it really considered a softcover I feel like I could have purchase something of the same quality at the dollar tree store Great book that discusses her life in an age appropriate way I just wish there were female artists in this series. Great illustrations and a fun writing style for young and old. Adorable book for young readers. My daughter lived the book
