Details: Suzy Liebermann has an entire series of children's stories relating to character traits. Each revolve around Hugo The Happy Starfish. Her books are very colorful, and great reading for kids of all ages. She says, "Believing that happiness can be learned, feelings can be understood and that building character based on a positive attitude leads to happy, content, self-confident and successful human beings,I have created this exciting series of charming books about HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH." Suzy does a great job with this.
Review: The Power of the Word - The Island of Empathy is #2 in her Character Traits Series. Hugo is on a quest to find the real world. He travels to various islands to discover what the real world is all about. The Power of the Word, takes Hugo to the Island of Empathy. Here he learns that good words are like arrows with hearts on the end. They make you feel good all over. On the other hand, words that hurt and are bad or mean are like arrows with sharp points-they hurt.
I believe most kids would enjoy these books. It would be great to have access to these in school's and libraries for parents and teachers to discuss with their children. What a fun way to learn about good character traits. Get your copy here:
Pros: Delightfully written.
Cons: The ebooks are a bit challenging to read. The author is aware of the problem of not being able to zoom in on the ebook pages. She is working to correct that issue.
My Review: Thumbs Up.
