(HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH - Island Adventures 12: Educational Children's Book Collection)
by Suzy Liebermann

Thank you Suzy for another wonderful book.

This book I read is called, Simply Charming The Island Of Appreciation, another wonderful Hugo The Happy Starfish story. It was an adorable book from the first page I've read to the last. It had the most cutest starfishes, that are Hugo's friends. I Always love how these Hugo books are bright and colorful. This book Simply Charming has Hugo and his friends from the sea, appreciating others by complements. 

I would think if your child got to read this book they will not only understand the importance to not be rude to others because of their looks, but to help make them feel so loved and happy to be them. Some people make fun of others because they have a problem or look different then others. However, as in this book it teaches to appreciate one another for being who they are and not talking bad or being rude to one another. I think this is a great learning book as well as a fun book to read.

Here is the description from the author

Come on a sea adventure with HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH as he finds out that HAPPINESS begins with APPRECIATION.

SIMPLY CHARMING (THE ISLAND OF APPRECIATION) contains a great educational lesson about the ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE.
On the ISLAND OF APPRECIATION Hugo and his friends learn how good it feels to make others feel good by supporting them with compliments. 

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.
