LA Times: These moms couldn’t find bilingual books so they started a bilingual publishing co

Patty Rodriguez and Ariana Stein (formerly Ariana Sauceda) started Lil’ Libros in 2014 because they had trouble finding children’s books in both English and Spanish. They started with a few titles like a picture book about Frida Kahlo & Loteria, a bingo game popular in Mexican culture. They used their savings to start it, finding a printing company and hiring an illustrator. They soon sold 1,000 pre-orders & landed a deal with Target, where they have 6 shelf spots in the books section. Learn more about the company & shop for their books here.
