Teach your children happiness with tips from Hugo!
I don't know if I have ever shared this with you about my daughter, but she absolutely loves reading and adores books. Library days are among her favorite because she knows we are coming home with new books. This is obviously wonderful for me, because I love reading as well, and I know that us reading together is a wonderful bonding time for us, in addition to the wonderful literary education this simple daily act provides. It is my firm belief that children and parents should definitely take time to read together each day.
More than just reading to my daughter, I love books that hold a greatly valuable lesson, such as the one that I found with Hugo The Happy Starfish: The Key to Happiness. This book was fun for her, but it was also a lesson that we were able to talk about, and it provided a lesson that I'm able to remind her of, in terms that she understands, whenever it comes up. Educational books are fairly easy to find, but books that provide a good general character education are sometimes a little harder to find.
You see, in this particular book (I believe that there are others, as well that teach other lessons from Hugo.), Hugo decides that he isn't happy, and he'd like to find Happiness. He gets help from a mentor, who suggests different things that will make him happy for different periods of time. Hugo eventually decides that he would like to be happy forever, and his mentor helps him to find that through sharing and loving. I know I gave away a bit of the story, but it is one that you and your children are bound to enjoy reading and talking about together.
This is an adorable story, with cute pictures and a wonderful meaning and lesson. I would recommend this book to parents and children to read together, more than once!
