An upcoming bilingual children’s book on the life of late Latin music icon Selena, La Vida De Selena, is already on top of the Amazon’s Spanish Book list and the book won’t be released until March 2018.
The bilingual picture book biography of Selena was written by Patty Rodriguez and Ariana Stein. The two friends created Lil Libros, a series of bilingual children’s books, when they realized they were unable to find any they could enjoy reading to their own children. You may remember, Rodriguez led the petition to create a MAC Selena cosmetics line in 2016.
Lil Libros made the announcement of the Selena children’s book via Instagram last week and pre-order sales quickly rose the book to the top of the Spanish Book List.

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. This is for you. Thank you. 🌹
According to the book’s description, “Your little one will learn that Selena’s favorite food was pizza and that the most important people in the world to her were her familia and fans.”
The book is expected to be released on March 6, 2018. To pre-order it for $8.99 on Amazon, click here.
