    Duncan Tonatiuh's writing and illustrating style is so captivating! Diego Rivera: His World and Ours was an amazing picture book! Bringing illustrations and digital pictures together is a great way to introduce the new age version of children's literature. Diego Rivera was packed with rich culture as it took a look at Diego Rivera's and Mexico’s history. Tonatiuh has easy to understand text and illustrations but they are also very intriguing as well. This book is an awesome read to help realize similarities between cultures.

    This energetic picture book Tonatiuh introduces readers to a young Diego Rivera. Diego Rivera was one of the most popular painters of the twentieth century and depicted historical events of Mexican history. Tonatiuh shows how Diego was a rambunctious little boy with a talent for art. He goes on to depict and define the styles of art that he experimented with and what he would paint today. The pictures in the book greatly add to the story and make the Life of Diego Rivera more available to young readers.

    This beautifully illustrated picture book introduces the Mexican

    This beautifully illustrated picture book introduces the Mexican painter and activist Diego Rivera to young children. All the artwork Tonatiuh does in this book represents his own personal interpretation of Rivera's work. He draws all his pictures with a mayan look to them. The big question addressed in this book is what style of paintings would Diego Rivera use today? Tonatiuh beautifully contrasts contemporary Mexican life with past Mexican life. This book follows Rivera across seas as he studies art and painting. Rivera's art was often done like a mural on sides of buildings in Mexico that way all could see. The colors and details in all the pictures are wonderful, making this book a deserving recipient of the 2012 Pura Belpre Award for illustration. This book is an excellent multi-cultural read and brings the art style of Mexico to life.

    WOULDN'T IT BE INTERESTING TO SEE WHAT DIEGO RIVERA'S PAINTING STYLES WOULD BE LIKE TODAY IF HE WERE STILL ALIVE? I HAD NEVER HEARD OF DIEGO RIVERA UNTIL I READ THIS THOMAS RIVERA MEXICAN AMERICAN CHILDRENS BOOK AWARD WINNER BY DUNCAN TONATIUH. THIS VIBRANT COLORED PICTURE BOOK IS OUTSTANDING. NOT ONLY DOES TONATIUH INCLUDE SOME OF RIVERA'S PAINTING STYLES, HE ALSO GIVES US RIVERA'S INSPIRATION FOR CHOOSING THESE STYLES. WHEN RIVERA WAS A YOUNG BOY HE LOVED DRAWING. HE TRAVELED ALL OVER THE WORLD STUDYING ART IN DIFFERENT CULTURES. HE LEARNED HOW TO PAINT WHILE HE WAS IN SPAIN AND AND WHILE HE WAS IN MEXICO HE LEARNED HOW TO PAINT MURALS. RIVERA USED HIS KNOWLEDGE OF CLASSICAL PAINTING AND NEW STYLES THAT HE HAD LEARNED WHILE TRAVELING; AND HE MIXED THEM TOGETHER. HE DID A LOT OF HISTORICAL PAINTINGS THAT HAD TO DO WITH HIS MEXICAN CULTURE. AND THAT LEADS TO THE BIG QUESTION, IF HE WERE STILL ALIVE, WHAT WOULD HIS PAINTINGS BE LIKE? i HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS BOOK AS MUCH AS I HAVE.
