Lively animal sounds and the soothing voice of narrator Adriana Sananes make this a joyful listen for kids. Episodes in the life of iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo show her happy times as a young girl and her difficult time after the bus accident that left her permanently injured. Through it all, Frida's many pets and creatures, such as Bonito the parrot and her spider monkeys, named Fulang Chang and Caimito de Guayabal, were a source of inspiration and comfort. Instead of focusing heavily on the depressing aspects of the artist's life, the author uses her ANIMALITOS to highlight Frida's spirit, curiosity, and imagination. An author's note explains Kahlo's artistic influence and lists the works in which her ANIMALITOS appear, so parents can pair this audiobook with images of Kahlo's paintings.
