Only 10 left in stock (more on the way). This is another of Bernier-Grand's free verse poetry biographies of famous Latino people presented in picture book format marketed to children; she has published books on Diego Rivera, Cesar Chavez, and Pablo Picasso to name a few. Frida is marketed by the publisher to grade 8 and up. I appreciated that this book is illustrated with original artwork because Kahlo's work is so unique and telling about it describe it in words while not showing it would not work.

Bernier-Grand, Carmen. Frida: ¡Viva la vida! Long Live Life!. New York: Marshall Cavendish Corporation.
Bernier-Grand, Carmen. This book contains a beautiful display of poems about the life of Frida Kahlo. I recall learning a lot about Frida Kahlo in my middle school art classes, as we studied her works, but I felt like I learned so much about her entire life from this one book. Carmen T. Bernier-Grand’s writes a biography of twentieth century Mexican painter Frida Kahlo in the book entitled, Frida Long Live Life! The story of Frida Kahlo is heart wrenching yet inspirational.
I dip the brush in blood-red paint and, embracing life with all its light, I print on a watermelon cut open-like I am- Viva la vida -a hymn to nature and life.
Poet Carmen T. Bernier-Grand explores the life of artist Frida Kahlo in probing poems written in Frida’s first-person voice. The result is an arresting, emotional portrait in words.
Carmen Bernier-Grand. Before becoming an author, Bernier-Grand worked as a math instructor at the University of Puerto Rico and later, as a computer programmer in Portland, OR. In 1981, she decided to stay home to raise her children and began writing stories. Currently, she is an established author of numerous bilingual books, a presenter of creative writing workshops, and a multicultural storyteller. Frida: ¡Viva la vida! Long Live Life! (Marshall Cavendish, 2007). Diego: Bigger than Life (Marshall Cavendish, 2009).
Viva la vida! Long Live Life! by Carmen T. Bernier-Grand. Writing primarily in the voice of the surrealist Frida Kahlo, Bernier-Grand presents readers with 26 poems that take her subject from birth to death, unswervingly touching upon the difficult territory in between: polio, the accident that led to some 31 subsequent operations, her (two) marriages to Diego Rivera, their mutual infidelities and her miscarriages.
Frida Kahlo, a native of Mexico, is described here in biographical poems accompanied by her own artwork. Both text and images reveal the anguish and joy of her two marriages to muralist Diego Rivera, her life-long suffering from a crippling bus accident, and her thirst for life, even as she tasted death.
