Carmen T Bernier Grand

Biography

My Top 5

All 5 of the book I chose are biography/poetry/picturebooks. I love this style that she uses, it isn't her only style of writing but it is the style I prefer. Frida: Viva La Vida!/Long Live Life!- (poetry/biography) Frida Kahlo, a native of Mexico, is described here in biographical poems accompanied by her own artwork. Both text and images reveal the anguish and joy of her two marriages to muralist Diego Rivera and her life-long suffering from a crippling bus accident. Including actual pictures and paintings from the artist as well as dairy pages. Diego: Bigger Than Life- (biogaphy/poetry)The inspiring free verse and vivid paintings capture the defining moments and emotions of Diego Rivera's tumultuous life, including his stormy relationship with artist Frida Kahlo and his passion for his art. Rivera's energy, physique, love for women, and work were all "bigger than life." A biography, chronology, glossary, sources, notes, and famous quotations are included.Cesar: Si, Se Puede!/ Yes, We Can!-(biography/poetry) Born in 1927 in Yuma, Arizona, César Chavez lived the hard-scrabble life of a migrant worker during the depression. He grew to be a charismatic leader and founded the National Farm Workers Association, an organization that fought for basic rights for his fellow farm workers. In powerful poems and dramatic stylized illustrations, Carmen T. Bernier-Grand and David Díaz pay tribute to his life and legacy.Sonia Sotomayor: Supreme Court Justice-(biography/poems) A free-verse biography of America's first Hispanic Supreme Court justice. Pablo Picasso: Yo El Rey = I the King-(porty/biography) This lovely representation of Picasso’s life is enhanced by the magical paintings not only of Picasso himself but of the great illustrator David Diaz. The text consists of free verse poems focusing not so much on Picasso's art but on the people and events influencing his art.

Growing up Carmens teachers always told her she had a great imaginaton. Her sister teased her saying that it meant she was a liar because Carmen was always making up stories. Little did either of the girls know, Carme T Bernier-Grand would become a great author one day. Born in Puerto Rico in 1947, Carmen attended University of Connecticut where she studies math and also met her husband. Carmen and her husband have 2 grown children, a son and daughter, and a dog who is biligual and loves to play patty-cake.
