Hugo the Happy Starfish One Step At A Time By Suzy Lieberman
I am a HUGE fan of Suzy Lieberman’s books!! Hugo the Happy Starfish is one of my favorite characters because I love the fact that he teaches good character to children. As a first grade teacher, this is something that I am always trying to instill in my students and Hugo is a character that children can identify with. He has a big heart and his passion is to make others happy, but he still has a lot to learn!
I received the Kindle version of the book Hugo the Happy Starfish One Step At A Time for Review. I read it to my grandchildren and to the students in my class and all of them really enjoyed the story! This book will teach children about the character traits of perseverance and commitment which I feel are really lacking in society today.
In the story, Hugo finds an empty candy wrapper with a picture of a huge chocolate mountain. Usually when Hugo finds trash in the ocean it upsets him but this time what he found made him curious. Hugo discovers that his chocolate mountain is in fact a real mountain, which is called the Matterhorn and is located in Switzerland. He decides to set off on a journey to find this mountain – a huge challenge for a little starfish! Hugo learns to take one step at a time and to enjoy the journey as much as the destination. Join Hugo as he finds the secret of perseverance when the road gets difficult.
ONE STEP AT A TIME is a story about the need for perspective, whatever mountains we face. This book is the perfect way to each kids to divide big challenges into little chunks and to take things one step at a time. I am always trying to teach this concept to my students so this story was a great way to illustrate that point to small children.
I also love the illustrations in this book…so bright and colorful…even on my Kindle! There are 28 eye catching illustrations in this story….enough to keep a young child’s interest.
