Reviews

-An accessible picture book about the life of Diego Rivera sounds like an oxymoron, but Winter and Winter succeed beyond belief. His early life is the focus; the text in Spanish and English captions the paintings. It does a journeyman's job of conveying facts in well-condensed sentences; the Spanish translation is clear and easy to follow. The paintings are done in Rivera's own colossal style, even though they actually measure only a few inches square. Winter displays her clear knowledge of and love for her subject.---(starred) School Library Journal. -----------Una excelente primera biografía.- -- Kirkus Reviews Ganadora del Premio New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book y del Reading Rainbow Book "An accessible picture book about the life of Diego Rivera sounds like an oxymoron, but Winter and Winter succeed beyond belief.
