Hugo the happy starfish (children's book review)

\I was so fortunate to have been chosen to review this awesome children's book!! 

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; all other things just made him feel better for a little while.

Adults strive to teach children to share within 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.

An award winning children’s book:
Award-Winning Finalist in the CHILDREN'S MIND/ BODY/ SPIRIT 
category of The USA "Best Books 2012" Awards, sponsored by USA Book News

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, Suzy Liebermann has 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 really enjoy reading children's books especially when they are full of bright colorful pictures and make a child laugh or smile. This book is very well written and easy to read. It's almost as if the characters come to life with all of the detail put into the pictures.

Hugo is a tiny starfish with a big heart!! He seems to be trying to find happiness many different ways when all he had to do was share the love of his heart :)

This book is not only fun to read to your little ones but also has a very good lesson to teach. At the end of the story there is a page for your child to draw his/her story to share also!! I totally give this book 5 stars for creativity and life like graphics.
