Book summery:
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.



Character education:
Believing that happiness can be learned, feelings can be understood and that building character based on positive attitude leads to happy, content, se;f-confident and successful human beings, Suzy Liebermann has created this exciting series of charming books about HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH.

The series of books on character education aims to help educate children about their feelings. their attitude, their choices and the consequences that follow and includes and introduction to Spanish language, lesson of character, ecological alertness and life skills - all amid a backdrop of a colorful island and mystical underwater world.



About the author: 
Suzy Liebermann - a German born linguist - now living in USA - has travels the world in pursuit of language, art, and culture. Having found it, she now shares it with the world's teachers, parents, and children through educational literature. Leveraging her decades of global experience teaching in German, Spanish, French, and English she wrote the exciting series of HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH to help educate children about their feelings, their attitude, their choices and the consequences that follow.
Mr. O reading to Mr. C. They are both very engaged!
We enjoyed this book! I like to colorful and engaging illustrations. I also like that it incorporates some spanish language. This book is available in 7 different languages through Amazon.com. The best part is the prompt at the end of the book. It asks the children to draw a picture of themselves helping someone else. Here are the drawings that two of my sons drew.
Mr. O's drawing. He's asking his friend to play with legos to cheer him up.
Mr. R's drawing. After hearing that his brother was offering to play with legos,
he drew a picture offering to build towers with his little brother.

You can lean more about Hugo the Happy Starfish at their website.


Lots of books for free on Amazon, many more on sale. Learn more here.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

PottyCover Review

PottyCover is a disposable toilet seat cover for children that covers the sides and the front of the toilet, to keep away germs and wetness.


It is made of shot non-woven fabric on top, coated with a layer of plastic on the bottom, creating a waterproof barrier between the toilet and the child. Each Potty cover is individually packaged in a small easy to carry bag for the on-the-go parent.


PottyCover has the largest coverage among similar products on the market. The extra large front flap keeps legs and clothes from touching the front of the toilet. The side flaps cover the sides where kids hold on to maintain their balance, keeping their hands away from germs.

Mr. R was very helpful in posing for some pictures. You can see how his hand doesn't touch the seat at all. Even when his little fingers wrap under the seat. Also, the front of the cover keeps his pants from touching the bottom of the bowl.



I love how they are securely and individually wrapped so I can toss one into my purse without worrying it will be unusable in our time of need. I also really like how they don't slip or tear, and trust me I tried! With a squirmy toddler this is super important.

My one wish is that these were flushable. Then I think they would be perfect!
