Frida Kahlo: The Immersive Biography: Immerse Your Family in a Life Well Live – New York Family

Now more than ever, resilience is a huge concern for parents. Wouldn’t it be great for your child to learn about someone who, after contracting polio at the age of six, filled her childhood with swimming, wrestling, and soccer?

Someone who responded to being severely injured in a car accident by becoming one of the most famous artists the world has ever known?

That someone is Frida Kahlo and, beginning October 28, you can introduce your kids to Frida in a way that engages their imaginations and captures all of their senses.
