KING HUGO - HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH ~childrens ebook review~

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
~

Hugo is a little starfish whose home is at the bottom of the wide ocean. He longs to visit the "real world" and  he decides to go and find it. Hugo's journey to happiness isn't quite as straightforward as he hopes though. He is sent to a series of different islands where he is taught important character lessons



This book King Hugo:Island of Independence is the 13th book of his adventures. I like the lesson Hugo and his friend Seedo the sea dragon learn along the way about how words can hurt. Once they get to the Island of Independance they are reminded by the islanders of all that Hugo has over come already- Respect, Creativity,and Cooperation just to name a few (all the books in Hugo's adventure) Hugo is amazed at what he has already accomplished -but his dream to get to the "real world"  THere is still more to Hugo journey.

The book comes with a number of worksheets which are downloadable at no cost on MyStarfish website.

Take the time to teach your Children to Be Kind! #TackyBoxKindness



This is a sponsored post on behalf of Tacky Box Campaign for Kindness and voiceBoks.com. I was provided with the following product for review. All opinions are 100% my own regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.




 Our children are  being exposed to tacky language and behavior, no matter how much we as parents want to shelter them. One of the biggest challenges as parents we face  is teaching in a way children can understand how to behave and respond when such language and behavior happens around them.
  Tacky Box was started by a mom, Chris Phelps  who was shocked one day when her kindergartener nonchalantly used her first four letter word. Chris came up with Tacky Box concept that equips children with the skills to distinguish between what’s appropriate and inappropriate and motivates them to proactively choose how to respond.Inspiring kindness rather than tackiness, Tacky Box Set arms parents with everything they need to help their child navigate through the day and life of a child. Keeping a kind heart and good manners unscathed.




We are officially on the Campaign for Kindness in our house. Here's how it went down in our house.
First we check out everything that's included in the box
Our Story Book
Authentic Tacky Box
Notepad with Max and Margo on it
A note from the Author

We read the book together and discussed the topic of the story. Then we decorated our box.


I love that there are separate books for boys and girls. Yet the message is the same. Watch your words; they can hurt just as much as your actions. My daughter is older but when she saw the decorated box she asked if she can fill out a paper too---quickly she wrote X at school called me dumb! 
The target age group is 3-8 and to get a  curriculum to roll out the concept in schools...clearly from what's happened to my daughter IT IS VERY MUCH NEEDED!!

 You can get your very own Tacky Box too and join the campaign too!

Jen Jen's House only place for all your Prom needs.

If you were in high school in the 80's and 90's prom dresses like these were

#Childrensbook #Review SIMPLY CHARMING - THE ISLAND OF APPRECIATION :HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.



We are on another adventure with Hugo the Happy Starfish. You really MUST check out these books by Suzy Liebermann, Hugo is a little starfish whose home is at the bottom of the wide ocean. He longs to visit the real world, and one day he decides to go and find it. Hugo's journey to happiness isn't quite as straightforward as he hopes though. He is sent to a series of different islands where he is taught important character lessons.
This book is Island 12 and contains one character trait I think is very important for children to learn at a very young age-How to pay someone a complement.  In the story Hugo and his pals learn that it can make someone else and even yourself feel good. when you can find something nice to say about the people around you.






The book comes with a number of worksheets which are downloadable at no cost on Hugo the Happy Starfish website.

#ToopyandBinoo New Animated Series #spon



Parents of young children know just how important it is to find engaging ways to entertain their children and are always searching for a perfect mix of creative fun, values and education. I was please to be invited to get a preview of some of the video's and fun  games and activities following this cute pair.

I received Toopy and Binoo products in exchange for a post about the show. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own

 Toopy and Binoo is an animated series that follows the adventures of Toopy, a tall, funny and friendly mouse, and his best friend Binoo, a tiny, clever and lovable white cat. The series inspires preschoolers ages 2 to 6 to expand their creativity while reinforcing positive values such as friendship, good manners, creative thinking, and humor. We really liked one of the stories called "The Big Blue" where Toopy's creative thinking took them on a journey for miles with out even leaving the park!























The series is a huge hit in Canada, and now for the first time ever is available to US audience on Toopy and Binoo TV YouTube channel. There are more then 100 episodes to enjoy.

Ozeri Duo Ultra Salt & Pepper Grinder ~~PRODUCT REVIEW~~

The Ozeri Duo Ultra Salt & Pepper Grinder has a powerful eco-friendly ceramic gears and a space-saving design that combines salt and pepper chambers in one grinder. When you are filler each chamber be careful not to over-fill... EX: if you go to the very top of the chamber with the pepper and slide the funnel to the salt, some pepper may fall. I suggest under filling to keep each spice in their own spot. You turn the grinder in a different direction clockwise for pepper or counter-clockwise for salt. It is very convenient to have one grinder to do both. The Ozeri Duo boasts high quality stainless steel and  has an ergonomic grip for ease of use. The removable lid includes a slider to provide easy access to the salt and pepper chambers while minimizing spillage. The feature I like the best is two adjustable knobs that precisely adjust the grind to your liking!! I like a coarse pepper while my hubby and kids only like a fine ground pepper with the Ozeri Duo Ultra we can all be happy.


Keeping your grinder clean is very easy too. Use a clean damp cloth and wipe it down and let it air dry. It is backed with a one year warranty-- I really respect a company who will stand behind their products and Ozeri does.
You can fin the Ozeri Duo Grinder on Amazon or the Ozeri website.

~BOOK REVIEW~ HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH : HAPPINESS begins with INTEGRITY.

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.





Come on a sea adventure with HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH as he finds out that HAPPINESS begins with INTEGRITY.



THE MOMENT OF TRUTH (THE ISLAND OF INTEGRITY) contains a great educational 

lesson about learning to do the right thing. It explains what trust is all about, how it is built

 and how important it is for a friendship.

This is a terrific story. The photos are eye catching and the story shows why being truthful is way more important then telling a lie and ending up losing friends and trust of others. Hugo

 learns that that it is better to be honest in the first place and what the consequences can

 follow, in the end he is left alone...it leaves room for a great discussion of what needs to be

 done to win back his friend. This is a great lesson for all ages!




Look how much Miss Molly is enjoying it!!
