Frida Kahlo books for 2nd Graders

Frida Kahlo is a remarkable artist and if you are careful about which works you choose to share, her art is very accessible to children. (Some of her art, on the other hand, may be scary or too adult.)

There are no books that we could find for practice reading on the first grade level, and there is really only one available on the second grade level. (The second book on our list has apparently vanished down a wormhole.)
