Hispanic Heritage Month

Dec 18, 2020
Greetings RainbowMe Family!   We are celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month which is September 15 through October 15 every year.   Below we have listed some of our favorite children's books that help us to celebrate some of the most notable Hispanic people and culture. Dive in and take a look!  
  1.  

  When her 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 unimaginable agony, her paintings expressed her pain and depression - and eventually, her joys and her loves. Over and over again, Frida Kahlo turned the challenges of her life into art. Now Jonah Winter and Ana Juan have drawn on both the art and the life to create a playful, insightful tribute to one of the twentieth century's most influential artists. Viva Frida! Get it HERE.

This charming book introduces one of the most popular artists of the twentieth century, Diego Rivera, to young readers. It tells the story of Diego as a young, mischievous boy who demonstrated a clear passion for art and then went on to become one of the most famous painters in the world. Duncan Tonatiuh also prompts readers to think about what Diego would paint today. Just as Diego's murals depicted great historical events in Mexican culture or celebrated native peoples, if Diego were painting today, what would his artwork depict? How would his paintings reflect today's culture? Diego Rivera: His World and Ours is a wonderful introduction to this great artist. Get it HERE.

It’s the day of Lolo’s big sister’s quinceañera party, and suddenly everyone is too busy to play with Lolo. But when she lets her dog Gobi run free, everyone notices. Vivid illustrations in acrylics and watercolor by Martha Avilés skillfully portray Lolo using her fast feet and wits to outsmart Gobi and save her big sister’s special day! Get it HERE.   We hope you enjoy celebrating these amazing people and cultures with us! We look forward to speaking with you really soon!!
