About the Hugo books:
Meet HUGO – a little starfish with a BIG HEART. His passion is to make others happy but he still has many things to learn.
Fortunately he has more than just a big heart, he also has a CURIOUS MIND.
Through his adventures, Hugo learns many valuable lessons of character, life skills, and ecological alertness — all against the colorful backdrop of a magical underwater world and mystical islands.
Join Hugo on his journey as he discovers that having the right attitude is the best way to be — and the only way to be truly happy.
The Hugo books are a series of books covering different topics for children, making them easier to understand even at a young age. I was able to take a look at The Last Bully. Hugo learns that just because someone is different then you doesn't make them any less special. Hugo decides to form his very own club with some of his fellow undersea friends, to share the importance of not being a bulky!
What I Thought:
I love the whole Hugo series! These books are wonderful topical books, that would be easy for parents searching for something that would touch on a topic for their own unique situations. With bullying being a hot-topic currently, this would be great to illustrate this subject with your younge children. I personally would recommend this book for the younger, elementary school-age set. The Hugo books also include several Spanish words and phrases. There are also interactive pages at the end of the book, where children are asked to draw and express their feelings on the topic of bullying. You can also find games and worksheets on the Hugo website.
