Hugo The Happy Starfish and The Island of Empathy Book Review






On the ISLAND OF EMPATHY Hugo learns about the power words can have and the fact that if he has nothing good to say he is better off not to say anything. Words are like arrows, once you let them go you cannot take them back and depending on how you use them they can hurt.

Hugo is a little starfish whose home is at the bottom of the wide ocean. He longs to visit the real world, and one day he decides to go and find it. Hugo's journey to happiness isn't quite as straightforward as he hopes though. He is sent to a series of different islands where he is taught important character lessons.
By the end of his journey, Hugo has visited fourteen islands, made many more friends, and, most importantly, learned how to be a better starfish.

‘HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH - ISLAND ADVENTURES’ is packed with life lessons for kids, showing them the importance of appreciation, patience, tolerance and optimism amongst others.

Teaching children life skills can be tricky, but with this exciting book your kids will come across some of the most important lessons there are to be learned. Like Hugo, their journey to the real world will be full of character lessons along the way.

In Hugo, children, parents, and educators will discover a lovable and engaging role model with whom they can identify.

The story consists of 29 gorgeous illustrations showing a colorful and magical underwater world.

Children will laugh at the delightful characters, hold their breaths in suspense and love to read this story over and over.

The book is suitable as a read aloud book for preschoolers or a self-read book for older children.

The book comes with a number of worksheets which are downloadable at no cost on our website.
The book is offered in two editions (a version with Spanish introductory vocabulary and an English only version) as well as in different languages such as German, Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese.

There are more HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH stories waiting to be discovered. Make sure to read THE LAST BULLY and THE SECRET TO HAPPINESS, THE MAGIC OF THE MOMENT, ONE STEP AT ATIME, FLYING HIGH, and many more.

My 9 year old daughter got to review this book and her thoughts are:

She says she loved the book. The colors were bright and cheerful. We tell our kids the same phrase a lot and it's "if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all". Hugo showed that words do hurt, they aren't just a harmless thing. Words like stupid and dumb are very hurtful. Kids use them a lot and don't really think before they use. We all need to teach out kids the value of nice words. Thank you Hugo for putting this into the right perspective for kids to understand.

Utensil Wipes Review





I am one of those people that does not like public bathrooms or silverware that has been sitting on the table for some time. You never know who has been walking by and sneezed or just ran their filthy hands along the table and touched the silverware that you are about to eat off. Carrying this product ensures that you can wipe them clean before you eat off of them.

Each of these wipes is


NON-TOXIC
NO ALCOHOL
NO HARSH CHEMICALS
MADE WITH FOOD GRADE ESSENTIAL OILS


12 packs with 120 wipes runs around $36

These are smart for moms of little ones also. You can carry these in the diaper bag and not have to worry about the germs from the spoons being in the bag for a couple day. This company also carries pacifier wipes. Which are great to make sure that is the pacifier drops on the floor your baby will have a clean pacifier to suck on and not have the alcohol from normal wipes.

Perfect size for glove box, diaper bag or backpack!
