by Jonah Winter Illustrated by Ana Juan
When Frida Kahlo’s mother was worn out from caring for her five sisters, her father gave her lessons in brushwork and color. When polio kept her bedridden for nine months, drawing saved her from boredom. When a bus accident left her in agony, her paintings expressed her pain and depression — and her joys and loves.
