PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

About This Book


This wonderful book is beautifully illustrated. It is a story of Diego Rivera's life simplified to appeal to a young child's perspective.

Since Diego Rivera is considered to be one of the most famous painters of the twentieth century, children should have an understanding of his contributions and why they are important.

The book describes how Rivera’s art depicts Mexican history and culture through murals and then compares then and now through a series of thoughtful questions.
