I am incredibly excited to announce that my new book The Life of/ La Vida de Selena is available now.
The Life of/ La Vida de Selena is so close to my heart because Selena is such a huge icon for us Latinos.
My best friend and partner at Lil' Libros, Ariana Stein, and I want to introduce children to the life of Latino heroes with books that celebrate our culture and history!
This bedtime story chronicles Selena's inspiring journey to international stardom and her love of Mexican culture and her familia. Your young ones will learn fun facts about the Queen of Cumbia, such as her love for pizza.
The beautiful illustrations by Citlali Reyes, along with fun facts truly make it a fun learning experience for both parents and their young ones.
I think back to listening to Selena y Los Dinos and watching the movie about her life for the first time and it brings me such joy to know that Selena's legacy can and WILL continue for generations to come.
Look at how ADORABLE this picture is!
Me and my fellow 'mompreneur', Ariana, realized the children’s book market had too few bilingual options for first concept books.
So, in 2014 I came up with the idea for Lil’ Libros, to celebrate our culture and heroes.
Lil' Libros books are available for sale online and your local Target and includes children’s stories on Latino icons such as painter Frida Kahlo, singer Celia Cruz and comedian Mario Moreno ‘Cantinflas,’ among others.
Once again, I am beyond excited to celebrate my culture and iconic figures that have helped mold what it means to be Latino/a.
Just like the movie says: "Anything for Salinas!"
