Hugo the Happy Starfish "One Step At A Time" Children's eBook Review

Disclosure: I received the below product in exchange for my honest review. All opinions and experiences are my own and may differ from your own. 

One Step At A Time

"One Step At A Time" is a story about the need for perspective, whatever mountains we face. This is the perfect story to teach children to divide big challenges into little chunks and to take things one step at a time. Children, parents and educators will discover with Hugo, a loveable and engaging role model with whom they can identify. This story has 28 gorgeous illustrations showing a colorful and magical underwater world. One Step At A Time is a great book for reading aloud with preschools or as a self-read book for older children. In addition to the book you can download several worksheets at no cost, just visit My Starfish

There are many Hugo The Happy Starfish stories. Some additional titles include, The Secret to Happiness, The Last Bully, The Magic of the Moment, It's Good To Be Me! and many more. Through Hugo's adventures, he learns many valuable lessons of character, life skills and ecological alertness, all amid the backdrop of a magical underwater world and mystical islands. The stories were developed in conjunction with the author's teaching experience at an International Baccalaureate School and they support the different learner profiles and attitudes of the IB PYP curriculum.

One Step At A Time - Happiness Begins One Step At A Time ($5.99ARV) is a wonderful story to help teach commitment. Hugo is a little starfish with a big sense of adventure. One day he 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.

Beautiful art work and encouragement to children in every Hugo The Happy Starfish book! My children are 9, 5 and 3 years old and they all love the Hugo books. We currently have three Hugo The Happy Starfish books and the kids want more. While I'm not usually keen on ebooks, with having a destructive 3 year old having these books as ebooks has helped to preserve them. No damage and they will always be available to "redownload" if needed. 

Purchase One Step At A Time on Amazon
