The power of Selena Quintanilla-Pérez is unmatched by most. Despite her life being cut tragically short at 23, the legacy she has left behind for fans is more than some artist could ever hope to accomplish with decades of music.

In the book world, Patty Rodriguez and Ariana Stein’s new board book, La Vida de Selena, is selling out on Amazon and has even bumped down Harry Potter y la piedra filosofal. The book currently sits at No. 1 on Amazon’s Spanish-language book list. It has book a March publication date and can be preordered here if you are interested in getting your hands on this adorable book.

Lil’Libros has published books on other iconic Latinx women like Frida Kahlo and Celia Cruz. Rodriguez and Stein posted a sweet post on Instagram as another small tribute to the singer:


How have you given thanks to Selena today?
