In Hugo The Happy Starfish: The Last Bully Hugo is a little starfish that comes across several bigger fish in the ocean. Sadly, they are bigger fish with bad attitudes. 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.
Hugo The Happy Starfish: The Last Bully is just one book in a series. In each book he learns valuable lessons of character, life skills, and ecological alertness – all amid the backdrop of a magical underwater world and mystical islands. 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.
We dealt with a bit of a bullying issue last year when my son attended Preschool for the first time, and this year he is off to Kindergarten so this book was able to give him some insight into how to react when someone treats you unkindly. I think Hugo is a cute little character most kids could identify with. I also loved the illustrations. The artwork captured the kids attention.
According to the author she wrote these books specifically to help educate children about their feelings, their attitude, their choices, and the consequences that follow.
Each book also offers a themed vocabulary to introduce the Spanish language to the reader & also comes with a number of worksheets which are downloadable at no cost on the website.
