For many Latinx millenials, the ability to quote every line from the 1987 film La Bamba comes as second nature. Who hasn’t dramatically yelled “Riiiiitchieeee” at least once in their lives? And for many of us who grew up quoting the Lou Diamond Philips masterpiece, parenthood has now come calling.

And what better way of keeping our favorite artist’s legacy alive, than through the nightly reading of their stories to our children? Lil Libros’ latest children’s book – The Life Of – La Vida De: Ritchie – lets us tell our children the tale of Ricardo Valenzuela, without all the problematic behavior from Ritchie’s older brother Bob.

If you’re lucky enough to live in LA, you can even stop by the Hollywood Ameoba Records location this Sunday to get a copy of the already-No. 1 Amazon’s Children’s Musical New Releases signed by Lil’ Libros’ co-founders Patty Rodriguez and Ariana Stein.
