" This is absolutely darling. The illustrations are sweet and the vocabulary is touching, especially to a fan of Selena's. I purchased this for my ESL class and bought an additional copy for my co-teacher, who grew up loving Selena in Texas. Highly recommended. (The text is in both English and Spanish.) " said.

" Lil' Libros makes adorable bi-lingual board books. I was so excited about La Vida de Selena that I pre-ordered it the moment it came to my attention. When I picked up the Amazon package from my doorstep, you know I started singing "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom" (while tearing the cardboard)! This was a self-gift/surprise for my daughter. Starting with Selena's hometown and mentioning "Big Bertha" and Chris Perez along the way, "La Vida de Selena" gives quick bilingual facts with bubbly illustrations. " said.

"Patty Rodriguez and Ariana Stein have teamed up to create two bilingual picture book biographies: Selena and Celia. It's refreshing to see two biographies of strong latina women written and illustrated by women.

The illustrations are bright and inviting--perfectly geared toward the EC audience. They go hand in hand with the adjacent text. After one or two sharings, young readers will be able to read the book independently with the support of the illustrations.

Surrounded by blank space, the sentences are are simple and clearly stated. However, there is no punctuation in the book. This missed opportunity to model correct sentence structure is a real problem. It's the difference between a 5-star and a 3-star rating.

Audience: EC-K
Connections: biographies, singers

" 3.5 starsI liked the concept of a bilingual board book about Selena, but some of the facts about her life seemed rather random. " said.
