Hugo The Happy Starfish - One Step at a Time

“ONE STEP AT A TIME Happiness Begins One Step At A Time”
is a great tale to teach commitment.
Hugo is a little starfish with a big sense of adventure. One day he finds an empty candy wrapper with a picture of a huge chocolate mountain. Usually when Hugo finds trash in the ocean it upsets him but this time what he found made him curious. Hugo discovers that his chocolate mountain is in fact a real mountain, which is called the Matterhorn and is located in Switzerland. He decides to set off on a journey to find this mountain – a huge challenge for a little starfish! Hugo learns to take one step at a time and to enjoy the journey as much as the destination. Join Hugo as he finds the secret of perseverance when the road gets difficult.

ONE STEP AT A TIME is a story about the need for perspective, whatever mountains we face. This book is the perfect way to each kids to divide big challenges into little chunks and to take things one step at a time.

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

The story consists of 28 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.

My little girls have been so tickled to receive the Hugo books. We got this one in an e-book version.  Kids love the pictures and parents love the lessons. Even the e-book has colorful pictures to help the kids imagine just how Hugo is dealing with his struggles. 
I cannot say enough good things about these books. Ms. Suzy has developed a great website to accommodate all the books as well. It seems there are worksheets and downloadables for many of her books. After reading a few of the books I am just now finding this. I wish I had seen it earlier. This is a great tool for teachers, parents, and parents of home schoolers.
Speaking of teachers.... There is also a Free Teacher Friday!! Teachers can go and apply with a little paragraph about theirself, their students, and the school they teach at. Every Friday a set of books will be raffled to one lucky winner. That is such an awesome thing to do for our teachers!
