Hugo The Happy Starfish - The Secret To Happiness eBook is a very cute and fun read about a little starfish named Hugo who finds his life dull. He is tired of feeling sad so one day he sets off to find happiness. After searching for a while he discovers something that makes his heart do somersaults. Sharing with others is the only thing that makes Hugo truly happy and all other things just made him feel better for a little while.
This is a great book as us adults, whether parents, grandparents or caregivers of another nature all strive to help teach children the benefits of sharing within our communities. This eBook helps to encourage children to give, which helps to teach them about empathy as well as a sense of social responsibility. Some children can even feel empowered by sharing and giving to others.
My children are great at sharing and my daughter is a little too giving in my opinion. She will give her friends things of her own even if she really likes the item(s). We always have to watch her closely in the mornings before she heads off to the bus stop other wise when she returns home, something that she took with will probably no longer be in possession. While I love the fact that my children are sharing and giving to others, they still need to hold onto their things as well. This book about Hugo The Happy Star Fish and his experience with sharing and the explanation of his feelings while giving and sharing seemed to help open a new door for Jedilynn. She began talking out about her own feelings and such when she gives and shares with other, whether they are friends at school or her brothers. It was a nice way to have a discussion about the way she feels about this. I personally believe all children should discuss their feelings about any and all of their actions and I love that this book helped us to discuss this topic.
All three of the kids love this book, however since Jedilynn is 7 and the boys and toddlers, she understood it better. Cade, who is 3.5 years old did mention a few different ways he recently shared something with his baby brother. I was quite impressed that he was able to understand and respond with a relevant event to the story we were reading.
This book is available in SEVEN different languages! How fun is that!
