Lil’Libros did it again! I’m super, super excited about this new bilingual children’s book about Selena! What a fun way to introduce Selena’s life, music and legacy to our children.
My children have already been introduced to her songs. (They are catchy, fun and the perfect vibe for Saturday morning chores!) However, they don’t know much about her life and what she accomplished through her music. So I love how this book will give a glimpse into Selena’s life!
Each page is filled with amazing illustrations and shares a few facts about Selena while highlighting some words. Plus, the pages are sturdy and perfect for little hands.
I love what Patty Rodriguez and Ariana Stein, the authors of The Life of /La Vida De Selena: A Lil’ Libros Bilingual Biography say about this amazing resource: “This is our way of saying thank you, Selena. Thank you for your music, energy, and love. The love you had for us — your community. But most importantly thank you for allowing us to dream just like you did. This is how we can thank you. By never forgetting you; by sharing your smile, music, and life with our children. By reminding them that you were us. That you loved and sang in two languages. That wherever you went you were proud of who you were and where you came from. By keeping you part of our family just like our parents did when you were here.”
And, that, my friends, is exactly why I think this book is a gem: a reminder of Selena’s pride for her heritage!
