(HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH - Island Adventures 10: Educational Children's Book Collection)
by Suzy Liebermann

First, I would like to Thank Suzy and the Happy Language Kids Llc.

Today's book review, Is on another wonderful Hugo The Happy Starfish ebook. The story is called Good Friends The Island of Tolerance. This is a story that shares how friends come in all different size, shape or any unique feature and can be a friend no matter what. 

I loved this book, not only did it show how Hugo was first showing his true opinion of these new friends he makes, but he finds it in his heart to understand that it doesn't matter what they look like on the outside, but how they are on the inside.  These are all wonderful colorful starfish, just like Hugo. However, they all had different appearances and it didn't register to Hugo that a friend can look different then he thought they should be, but when Hugo goes to talk with the starfish, he learns how special they are in different ways. Some could do interesting things that made them unique, which Hugo could never do. 

Finally, I'd like to say that this book is great for every child. You won't only have your child learning to love everyone, but to love what makes each friend of theirs different.

Here's some information from the author:

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

GOOD FRIENDS (THE ISLAND OF TOLERANCE) contains a great educational lesson about TOLERANCE AND FRIENDSHIP.
On the ISLAND OF TOLERANCE Hugo learns not to judge others by their appearance. He discovers that good friends can come in all shapes and sizes and that you have to be tolerant in order to have good friendships.

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.
