Book Description:
Hugo is a little starfish. He finds his life dull. Tired of feeling sad, one day he sets off to find happiness. After much searching, he discovers something that makes his heart do a somersault! Sharing with others is the only thing that makes him truly happy; all other things just made him feel better for a little while.

Adults strive to teach children to share within their communities. Encouraging children to give teaches them empathy, as well as a sense of social responsibility. Children can feel empowered by giving and sharing with others.

My Opinion:
This book introduces Hugo and explains how Hugo the Starfish becomes Hugo the Happy Starfish. Hugo is sad at first and looking for happiness so he asks his friends for ideas. He soon figures out that happiness doesn't last. One day he decides to share his heart with others and realizes that by sharing and helping others he can have true happiness! This is a beautiful children's book! Suzy Liebermann's books are great for explaining feelings to children.
