My Papa Diego and Me Mi Papa Diego y Yo by Guadalupe Rivera Marin, Guadalupe Rivera Marn, Guadalup Rivera Marin, Guadalupe Rivera Maran

When most people think of my father, Diego Rivera, they think of him as a famous painter... His hard work, dedication, and talent taught me that if you work hard at your passion, you can achieve your dreams. Guadalupe Rivera Marin had a very unusual childhood, growing up among world famous artwork. Her papa, Diego Rivera, was a larger-than-life figure who created unforgettable images of working people, of life in Mexico, of industrial machines and flowers. But Diego Rivera also loved to paint children, and you'll find them inside the pages of this book, along with lessons and wisdom he passed along to his eldest daughter.Guadalupe Rivera Marin shares some of her childhood memories of the world-renowned artist who also happened to be her papa. Her recollections are tender, humorous, and unexpected. This intimate artistic portrait will delight readers, from the youngest art lovers to Diego Rivera's biggest fans.
