When granted some magic wishes he decides to change a few things he doesn't like about himself. Hugo learns a great lesson and once those changes are made he wishes he could be himself again. Join Hugo on this adventure as he discovers that being himself is the best way to be, and the only way to be happy.
It's Good To Be Me! is a story about the importance of self-esteem when striving to be a happy and successful person. This story is a goof way to teach children about having a healthy self-esteem and to be happy with the way they are. It teaches appreciation and five senses.
My children are ages nine, five and three a positive self image is imperative at all ages and it's never too soon to start reading a book such as Hugo's It's Good To Be ME!. Often we forget to talk about emotions, how to handle certain situations, etc. Hugo's stories help fill in those often forgotten gaps. While things such as appreciating yourself and having self confidence seem like second nature, we've all learned different things at different points in our lives that we've used to help develop our own self worth.
With having a nine year old daughter, I feel it's even more important to help teach her to be confident in herself, positive self-esteem, etc. These books are not too "young" of reads for her and she often enjoys reading them by herself as well as to her brothers. She even goes as far as explaining some things to her brothers while reading them and will give me examples from real life situations in which she has faced.
