Princess Lea - Lea Salonga's Life Story Book

I'm highly recommending Lea Salonga's life story book, entitled  Princess Lea, as gift for girls who's into books. 

In this book, Lea shares how she followed her heart to become the greatly admired and highly respected singer and actress she is today. Princess Lea narrates how Lea went from a six-year-old who landed a part in a local production of The King and I to an internationally renowned performer who has starred as Kim in Miss Saigon, Eponine and Fantine in Les Miserables, and Mei-Li in Flower Drum Song; won honors from the US’ Tony Awards and the UK’s Laurence Olivier Awards; and sung for six Philippine presidents, three American presidents, and the Queen of England.

Princess Lea is presented by Dream Big Books, written by Yvette Fernandez and illustrated by Nicole Lim and is now available in bookstores nationwide for only P125. 

Dream Big Books is an imprint of Summit Books that inspires children to make a positive change in the world by sharing the life stories of Filipino role models. Among the books in Dream Big Books’ roster are Big John, the riches-to-rags-to-riches tale of John Gokongwei, Jr.; Nanay Coring, the success story of National Book Store owner Socorro Ramos; Ninoy, Cory, and Noynoy, which tells of the deep love for nation of the Aquino family; and Simply Jesse, which recounts the life of former DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo.
