In this new series, discover the lives of outstanding people from designers and artists to scientists. All of them went on to achieve incredible things, yet all of them began life as a little child with a dream. The second book follows Frida Kahlo, whose desire to study medicine was destroyed by a childhood accident. Frida began painting from her bedside and produced over 140 works, culminating in a solo exhibition in America. This inspiring and informative little biography comes with extra facts about Frida's life at the back.

Meant to post my #FabulousFebruary TBR this morning. Already finished this Little People Big Dreams book. I‘ve started most of these. Trying to slow down and focus on print and kindle books this time. Also decided to reread the BSC books since I recklessly read them out of order as a kid 😂

I love this series of books and am surprised that the Harriett Tubman story isn‘t in the Litsy database. This is a great story about the amazing Tubman. She is a figure that all children should learn about in order to better understand the travesty of slavery and the importance of equal rights for all. #nfnov.

I love this book b/c it can be used to join reading w/ history, art, & cultural diversity! This book is a simple overview of Kahlo's life & achievements. I would use this as an intro into the study of Frida, the history of Mexico, or the study of women in history

KPC I love Frida Kahlo! What a great version for children. :) 3y
Bmelendez92 This is an amazing colorful book, not only teaching about her but also reaching the younger audience with the beautiful illustrations. Good find! 3y
Ivanita08 Great selection Raquel! I barely know about Frida‘s life, but based on the colorful images and particular portrait of Frida on this book, I think I would like to read this book to know more about her! 3y
KDrake I love any children's book that helps to promote acceptance of diversity and brings historical facts about different cultures to the classroom for students. I also love it when I can learn something new myself from reading a book. This would be a fantastic addition to any classroom library, especially if there are any ELLs from Mexico in your class! 👍😁 3y

Little People, Big Dreams: Frida Kahlo by Isabel Sanchez Vegara and illustrated by Gwen Fan Eng is an amazing biography book that illustrates the life and colorful culture of painter, Frida Kahlo, in playful picture scenes. I loved how this book allow for fusion in lessons of culture and people in with historical art. It leaves many possibilities for a large variety of different activities such as painting projects and in-depth cultural studies

Killianfig UDL strategies 7.3 and 7.2 can be used for a story-time session and highlighting the cultural aspects seen in the book. Due the the book‘s Latino roots, ESOL strategies that emphasize cultural connection like 24, 4, and 11 can be exercised as students may have prior connection to the culture being discussed. Check out this Kahlo lesson plan that teaches self-expression through self-portraits: 4y

Because of its target audience, this book glosses over the more dramatic aspects of Kahlo‘s life, while still giving a sense of what inspired her art. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love the idea behind the 'little people, big dreams' series but this one feels a little too fragmented... needs more detail!
