Can you imagine what it’s like for twins Matteo and Valentino during bedtime? They get to snuggle up to their famous daddy Ricky Martin as he reads them sweet stories while falling asleep. Many of us won’t ever get to be that lucky but we can get one step closer to the dream! The hip-shaking, hitmaking superstar is getting ready to release his first children’s book entitled, Santiago the Dreamer in “Land Among Stars” on November 14th in both English and Spanish.
“I hope this book inspires young readers to believe that dreams woven from their imaginations can become reality,” Martin said via a press release. “My greatest wish is that Santiago The Dreamer will occupy a special place in the hearts of children and their parents, with everyone enjoying this uplifting story that shows the fulfillment of dreams begins with self-confidence.”
Based on his own love of performing as a child, Martin tells the story of a boy named Santiago whose biggest dream is to perform on stage. But after failing to nab the lead role in a school play, he begins to doubt himself. But with the help of his father, Santiago is able to rebuild his confidence and look at the world in a different more positive way.
You can pre-order the book via this Amazon link. I’m hoping he decides to release an audio book version for me!
