Hugo is the Happy Starfish that I’ve read about a few other times. He always has a great message in his books and this one is no different. In this book, Hugo is being pretty rude to everyone around him. And so everyone doesn’t give him any respect. He goes on a treasure hunt and finds the MAGIC WORDS – Please and Thank You and knows that these will get him everything he needs on the island. And that is how Hugo learned to treat people with respect and use the magic words if he wants to get respect in return (and some burgers!)
This is a great lesson on what can happen if you don’t use your magic words – anywhere – not just on the Island of Respect. A great story for kids (and heck, some adults too – I worked retail. I know how they can be!)
About the Book
IMAGINE HAPPINESS CAN BE LEARNED®
Meet HUGO – a little starfish with a big heart. His passion is to make others happy but he still has many things to learn. Fortunately he has more than just a big heart — he also has a curious mind.
Through his adventures, Hugo learns many valuable lessons of character, life skills, and ecological alertness — all against the colorful backdrop of a magical underwater world and mystical islands.
Join Hugo on his journey as he discovers that having the right attitude is the best way to be — and the only way to be truly happy.
Believing that happiness can be learned, feelings can be understood, and that building character based on a positive attitude leads to a happy, content, successful and confident human being, Suzy Liebermann has written this charming series of children’s books to help educate children about their feelings, their attitudes, their choices, and the consequences that follow.
