A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of hosting the lovely mujeres behind our favorite bilingual children’s books Lil’ Libros! . Authors Patty Rodriguez and Ariana Stein took some time out of their busy schedules to pay Mi Vida a visit for a very intimate book signing!
We are huge fans of Lil Libros, and let’s be real, who isn’t? They are the perfect gift for your favorite little escuincles out there! So we were very excited to have the opportunity to invite and welcome Patty and Ariana into our home.
The artwork and concept behind Lil Libros is pure genius, and we’re surprised that something like this has taken so long to be created, but we’re glad it’s finally out there! Our latino community needs more mainstream, educational bilingual books and we think Lil’ Libros hits the nail on the coffin with their series! We’re happy to be carrying these inspirational libros and to be able to support other hard-working mujeres out there.
Teaching our kids and youth the importance and power of being bilingual in this day is a very important concept to us. As we have mentioned before, embracing our cultura is paramount to Mi Vida and we’re always happy to meet and work with other like minded artistas. Many of our customers have told us numerous times that Mi Vida is their go-to boutique for affordable and thoughtful gifts, and we’re so happy to add Lil’ Libros to our rotation. These two women are very influential people in our community and we feel honored to have had them visit our little espacio that we’ve created for our neighborhood.
We feel that both Patty and Ariana left feeling content knowing their books are reaching mom and pop shops like Mi Vida and look forward to seeing what else Lil’ Libros has in store for our little chamaquitos!
