The surreal world of Frida Kahlo, one of Mexico's most treasured artists, comes alive in Viva Frida by Yuyi Morales. Kahlo's work was once described as "a ribbon wrapped around a bomb", and this simple, yet expressive, story is just as inspirational as the artist herself. Yuyi Morales ( http://yuyimorales.blogspot.com/) uses a type of stop motion photography with three dimensional materials, including Frida Kahlo dolls that five-year-old me would have died for, to create the dreamy vignettes readers will experience with the book. The words are simple. There are less than five words per page, yet the story still entertains and engages readers. The artwork is so active and vivid that words are almost unnecessary. Viva Frida received the 2015 Pura Belpre award. An award named after the first Latina librarian in New York City, the Pura Belpre recognizes outstanding work that celebrates Latino culture.
