Got this for the future kiddo and it s SO GREAT. Oh my goodness I love, love, love this book All of Lil Libros are awesome, but in this one, the illustrations and the text complement each other so well, it is a biography instead of a word book like the others Adorable 3.5 starsI liked the concept of a bilingual board book about Selena, but some of the facts about her life seemed rather random. I love this series, but this book in particular does a fantastic job of conveying biographical facts using single, bilingual words and colorful illustrations Highly recommend 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 KConnections biographies, singers The whole Lil Libros series is just fantastic and this one in particular introduced me to a Cuban singer, Celia Cruz, whom I had never heard of before.
