The Little People, Big Dream series from Quarto is perfect for inspiring young minds.
This beautifully illustrated title gives an age-appropriate overview of Frida Kahlo’s short and troubled life. We see that she suffers a childhood illness which affects her leg and is later involved in an accident which means she must spend much of her time in bed.
Frustrated by the cards she has been dealt; Frida focuses all her energy on learning to paint. She creates startling self-portraits which reflect the pain she is feeling inside and after her death becomes an internationally celebrated artist and icon.
An inspiring story which teaches children that sometimes what seems like the biggest hurdle can actually be the start of a new journey.
