Ricky Martin can now add children’s book author to his resume. Three years after the release of his autobiography, the father-of-two shared news of his latest publishing project, Santiago the Dreamer in Land Among the Stars, on his WhoSay account Monday.
“Exciting news! Here is the cover of my 1st children’s book, out Nov. 14th,” Martin, 41, wrote.
The kid-friendly tale – which will also be available in Spanish – is about a young boy named Santiago, who struggles with self confidence after he doesn’t land the lead role in his school’s play. Heavily influenced by his own childhood, Martin hopes his book “inspires young readers to believe that dreams woven from their imaginations can become reality.”
On the same day, the ecstatic singer also gave fans a sneak peek of an uplifting quote from the book. “When you reach for the moon … sometimes you land among the stars.’ – Santiago The Dreamer,” he Tweeted.
One thing’s for sure: come November, we know what Martin will be reading to 5-year-old twins Valentino and Matteo at bedtime.
