Recently, I was selected to do a review for a children’s book.
Hugo: The Secret to Happiness
Hugo has a nice little series going on! Hugo The Happy Starfish is about helping children. Hugo wants to show children how to be positive in life, how happiness can be learned and to be confident.
As a person, I am happy that this series as been created! But as a person who has never been confident, struggled to find happiness and has had a very hard time staying positive, I am stoked about this series. But the mom in me is even more stoked.
I have a 5 year old son and and as a single mom I struggle everyday when it comes to certain things in my sons life. It’s not a easy job raising a child and trying to instill values in him. The Hugo series has a nice collection of books that will help your child along!
The version of the book I received was a Ebook. Thankfully, Kindle has a app that can be added to almost any smart phone or tablet! You can get the app from Google Play here.
The illustrations in this book are super cute. They are very colorful which is great because it will capture a child’s interest. I love that the characters are underwater creatures! My son loves fish! He thinks they are fascinating!
For the book itself, I really enjoyed it. The only thing I wasn’t a fan of is when Hugo realized that sharing makes him happy there is no mention of him sharing his fortune that he found. He bought all the things he wanted and that did no make him happy. I would think sharing his fortune with others who are maybe less fortunate would really make him happy and show that sharing is really caring.
Overall I love this book and all the positive things that come from it. It is a book I am happy to read to my son!
Suzy Liebermann has done a great job creating this serious. It is important for us to instill values in our children. There are so many children out there that don’t understand what it is to be happy unless they have the newest gadgets or the newest clothes. Kids feel that it is okay to pick on one another. I am sadden when I hear children are being pulled out of elementary school because of bullies or children are committing suicide. This is stuff that should not be happening!
There is always something to smile about, The grass is always greener on the other side.
“There is always a light at the end of the tunnel, the trick is not be afraid of the dark while you find it.”
I highly recommend this book as well as others from the Hugo series.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
