" I was wondering how a board book could possibly address the full Selena story, but this one does, in a lovely way. " said.

" Genre: ConceptCopyright: 2014My favorite of Patty's! Selena lead a very complex life, so to be able to sum up her story in a way that young readers can understand is quite the feat! Beautiful illustrations and who can argue the great Spanish representation in this book? " said.

" 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.

" I have been attempting to make my nieces and nephew bilingual since they were born - which is hard because my Spanish isn't very good. I started buying the Lil' Libros books to at least help them (and myself) pick up a few words here and there. They love this Selena book and frequently pick it from the bookshelf for me to read to them. I will be purchasing all the Lil' Libros for my bookshelf. " 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.

" 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.

"To my surprise (given all the other Lil' Libros I'd read, including the Celia Cruz biography), this actually uses full sentences -- though it still highlights a single word in each sentence and illustrates that. I'm not sure who exactly the target audience is, since it's a board book but feels aimed at tweens or something with lines like "Her favorite food was Pizza" and "She had a gift for Fashion." It also glosses over her early death, ending with, "To this day, Selena continues to bloom like a Flower."" said.

" I was wondering how a board book could possibly address the full Selena story, but this one does, in a lovely way. " said.
