Intriguing Boardbook Biography of Artist from Mexico
FRIDA CATLO is the third in the Wild Bios Series from Silver Dolphin books that introduces the very young to art in this sturdy boardbook. This artist began her painting career by learning about photography from her father. She was involved in a terrible accident as a young child and spent her time while recuperating by trying her hand at painting. Her paintings featured beautiful objects from her Mexican heritage. She was invited to show her work at the Louvre in Paris, France in 1939. What a thrill! Her paintings from a Mexican artist were the first that the Louvre had ever purchased. Her works can now be found in many other museums.
FRIDA CATLO has an ISBN of 978-1-68142-558-6.

Add All Three to Your Early Childhood Classroom Library
Early childhood teachers or caregivers will want to add all three of these delightful boardbooks to their book collection in the classroom. Each offers an unique opportunity to introduce a special topic to young children and some history of each topic. The colorful and beautifully done illustrations are engaging for young children. Boardbooks are sturdy and designed for even the roughest treatment in early childhood classrooms. Low bookshelves in early classrooms make it easy for children to take from the shelf to "read" on their own.
Bringing recordings of rock music into the classroom when introducing The History of Rock is perfect for getting your little ones onto the dance floor for a fun activity. The boardbook featuring the Mexican artist present an opportunity to offer painting activities after introducing this artist. This choice is also a great one for putting some multicultural art into the classroom after enjoying the book.
