This is the first time I have heard of this kids series and I was excited to read this vibrant book aloud to the boys! Since I am all about sneaking a little character education in for the boys, this book learning about attitude empathy seems to be a match!


Who is Hugo the Happy Starfish?

Hugo the Happy Starfish is an award winning children’s book from author Suzy Liebermann. Suzy believes that happiness can be learned by understanding feelings and building character on a positive attitude which will lead to lasting happiness. This creates happy, content, confident and successful human beings. In this belief, Suzy has created a series of books aimed to help educate kids about their feelings, attitudes, choices and consequences. Since the lessons are based around “star” character, Hugo, kids will learn valuable lessons while having a great time reading.

The colors are beautiful and we loved that there were Spanish words mixed in the books! We were able to fit this reading session in before lunch while Shay was taking a quick nap. Both boys really enjoyed the story and Zane loved looking at the pictures and pointing out the colors.

Jorryn really liked getting to color the last page in the book. We then discussed his picture about helping a friend who fell down and got hurt and how good that made him feel. Since we have been talking a lot about being considerate of other people’s feelings lately, I was pleased that this book was right in line what we’ve been talking about. I would definitely recommend this book to other families. The story was good, the pictures were colorful and the message was right on target!

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