Renowned Mexican artist Frida Kahlo is known for her beautiful paintings and self-portraits. What many readers may not know is that Frida Kahlo and her Animalitos (NorthSouth, $17.95) shared a special bond. Kahlo had many animals throughout her life, including a black cat, a fawn, a parrot, an eagle, two monkeys, two turkeys, and three dogs.

Monica Brown details Kahlo’s life and the challenges she faced while giving readers tidbits about her pets as well. With beautiful illustrations by John Parra, filled with colorful details for readers to discover, this picture-book biography is a delightful introduction to the life and work of Frida Kahlo.
