Kid Book Review: HUGO the Happy Starfish ... The Last Bully
My oldest son really enjoyed reading HUGO the Happy Starfish (The Last Bully) by Suzy Liebermann to the kids at bedtime. We all loved how Spanish was incorporated into the text and that they learned key concepts like respect, don't bully, bullying in general, etc. The characters are adorable and the message is timeless.
About this book:
Happiness Begins With Respect
Hugo is a little starfish and so it’s not surprising that in this story he comes across several bigger fish in the ocean. Sadly, they are bigger fish with the wrong attitudes – they are bullies! After seeing his friend getting bullied, Hugo decides enough is enough. He forms the Anti-Bully Club and teaches the bullies a valuable lesson about respect.
By working together as a group, Hugo and his friends manage to show the bullies that there is always a bigger fish in the sea and that happiness comes from respecting others not bullying them.
THE LAST BULLY is great tale to teach a lesson about one of the biggest issues around.
This book is a great way to teach RESPECT.
Meet HUGO, a little starfish with a big heart and a curious mind.
In very story of the series he learns about a different character trade/ attitude.
The first and second book of HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH is an
Award-Winning Finalist in the CHILDREN’S MIND/ BODY/ SPIRIT category of the USA “Best Books 2011” and "Best Books 2012" Awards.
The key theme behind the HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH series is that building character based on a positive attitude leads to a happy, self-confident and successful human being. I have written this exciting series of children’s books to help educate children about their feelings, their attitude, their choices, and the consequences that follow.
Through his adventures, Hugo learns many valuable lessons of character, life skills, and ecological alertness – all amid the backdrop of a magical underwater world and mystical islands.
In Hugo, children, parents, and educators will discover a lovable and engaging role model with whom they can identify. Each book offers a themed vocabulary to introduce the Spanish language to the reader. Each book also comes with a number of worksheets which are downloadable at no cost on our website.
This program is particularly aligned with the aims and values she upheld as a teacher of cultural art and foreign language at a prestigious International Baccalaureate World School.
