Suzy Libermann's Hugo the Happy Starfish Books ~~REVIEW~~

I was please to be introduced to the wonderful wold of Hugo the Happy Starfish.
Right now my son is all about sea creatures so as soon as he saw the shark on the cover
I had no problem convincing him to read these books with me.

In  the Last Bully Hugo is a  cute little starfish in the ocean in this story he comes across several bigger fish who are sadly -bullies! After seeing his friend getting bullied, Hugo decides he's had enough. He forms the Anti-Bully Club and teaches the bullies a valuable lesson about respect.

By working together as a group, Hugo and his friends manage to show the bullies that there is always a bigger fish in the sea and that happiness comes from respecting others not bullying them.

The story is done in a great way to get your children to open up about what they might be seeing or have happening to them in school. It shows the power ONE can have to effect a whole group.

In the story The Secret to Happiness  Hugo is tired of feeling sad, one day he sets off to find happiness. After much searching, he discovers something that makes his heart do a somersault! Sharing with others is the only thing that makes him truly happy. Adults strive to teach children to share with their communities. Encouraging children to give teaches them empathy, as well as a sense of social responsibility. Children can feel empowered by giving and sharing with others. This book is a great way to teach EMPATHY. I like how colorful the books are and how easy the messages are given, showing how great Hugo feels when he learns to help others. Each book has a great spot for your child to add their own experience to the story by sharing a drawing. I also found the introduction of Spanish a very nice touch to the story.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
