Synopsis:  
Happiness Begins With Sharing
Hugo is a little starfish. He finds his life dull. 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.
Meet HUGO, a little starfish with a big heart and a curious mind.
In very story of the series he learns about a different character trade/ attitude.
The first book of HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH is an
Award-Winning Finalist in the CHILRDEN’S MIND/ BODY/ SPIRIT category of the USA “Best Books 2011” Awards.
The key theme behind the HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH series is that building character based on a positive attitude leads to a happy, self-confident and successful human being. I have written this exciting series of children’s books to help educate children about their feelings, their attitude, their choices, and the consequences that follow.
Through his adventures, Hugo learns many valuable lessons of character, life skills, and ecological alertness – all amid the backdrop of a magical underwater world and mystical islands.
In Hugo, children, parents, and educators will discover a lovable and engaging role model with whom they can identify. Each book offers a themed vocabulary to introduce the Spanish language to the reader. Each book also comes with a number of worksheets which are downloadable at no cost on our website.
We are sure you’ll agree that life skills and character traits are two of the most important lessons to teach the young. Age-appropriate children’s books are crucial to child development and well-written books that contain a message can expand not only a child’s cognitive abilities, but also their emotional, moral, and spiritual capacities. We believe this distinctive way of sharing a “message” through the medium of an exciting narrative is what has given the books their charm.
The stories were developed in conjunction with my teaching experience at an International Baccalaureate® School and they support the different learner profiles and attitudes of the IB PYP curriculum.
This book is a great way to teach EMPATHY and the CALENDAR.


My Review:  
What a cute, well written and illustrated book for kids. Not only was it full of color and neat characters but told in such a way that it reaches different learning experiences as well. 

The adventures that Hugo has in his life also can be used to teach children many wonderful character traits. 

I was very much pulled in to these thirty two colorful pages and at the end was ready to read it again to grandkids. They loved it. 

So as you can see above in the synopsis, it gives you a good idea of the book, all I will add at this time is, I would recommend it to all parents to read to there kids and add it in to their bookshelf. 

I give this book by Suzy Liebermann my Breath of Life Rating of:


Five Clock Rating!

Character Development for Children
Believing that happiness can be learned, feelings can be understood and that building character based on a positive attitude leads to happy, content, self-confident and successful human beings, I have created this exciting series of charming books about HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH.
The series of books on character education aims to help educate children about their feelings, their attitude, their choices and the consequences that follow and includes an introduction to the Spanish language, lessons of character, ecological alertness and life skills--all amid a backdrop of a colourful island and mystical underwater world.
I have always had a love for teaching and helping others. Being able to share the wisdom of the right attitude through my stories gave my life a new goal to make a difference in the world.
Today I live my dream of helping others to find the right attitude for life - because life gets so much easier with the right attitude. We might not be able to control life's circumstances or other people's actions however we can control our attitude towards them.
With lots of LOVE and HAPPINESS,
