A Lil’ Libros Bilingual Biography Selena’s career started at a young age when she became lead singer in her family’s band, Selena Y Los Dinos. She went on to become an award-winning artist with albums like Amor Prohibido and Selena Live, and earned the title “Queen of Tejano Music.” 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 familiaand fans.
Cute book, but I think especially good for those learning Spanish/English, as it has a sentence on each page in both languages and an illustration to go with it. I’m not personally familiar with Selena, so the book just felt a little disjointed for me, but I’m sure her fans would love this book and give it a great rating.
