This month, we're celebrating Latinx heritage! Mexican artist Frida Kahlo loved to include her animal friends in her paintings. In Frida Kahlo and Her Animalitos, written by Monica Brown and illustrated by John Parra, we’ll learn about the ways in which Frida embodied each of her pet’s special characteristics! After the story, create your own portrait inspired by your favorite animals and your own unique qualities!
