LEA SALONGA's Life Story Told Through A Children's Book

Tony award-winner Lea Salonga looks to inspire children through her new book.

Titled "Princess Lea," the book covers Salonga's story of success that started way back when she was still six years old.

It does not only take the readers on her journey to success, it is also a way of inspiring children to reach their dreams.

"My daughter is enjoying this very much. She's like, 'Is it weird? There's a book about you?' I said, 'No, it's not weird. It's fine.' She's in a very unique position that her mom has a book about her... She was very excited to see herself in the book too. She's 7, I think she'll enjoy everything. She's not going to be overly critical of anything at this point," Salonga said in an article posted by

It was at the age of 7 when Salonga started having professional stints in the local theater scene. Ten years later, she grabbed the role of Kim in "Miss Saigon," which brought her to the international scene.

She was won several awards including the very prestigious -- The Antoinette Perry Award for Excellence in Theatre, more formally known as the Tony Awards.
