Flying High-Hugo The Happy Starfish By Suzy Liebermann

Hi Guys!
So how has everyone been? Good I hope. We have just survived the second week of school and I am already going insane. The routine for picking up my daughter is insane. She is supposed to be 2:45 p.m. when she is released and it has been 3:30 p.m. or later before I could finally get her. There is a new principle this year so hopefully she will figure this out. But anyways I got the chance to do a review on this book called 'Flying High-Hugo The Happy Starfish" by Suzy Liebermann.
Product Description:
Come on a sea adventure with HUGO THE HAPPY STARFISH as he finds out that HAPPINESS begins with ENTHUSIASM. 

FLYING HIGH (THE ISLAND OF ENTHUSIASM) contains a great educational lesson about ENTHUSIASM AND SELF-CONTROL. 
On the ISLAND OF ENTHUSIASM Hugo learns that Enthusiasm makes the task more enjoyable, however being overly enthusiastic makes you lose your focus and a rude awakening is the consequence. 
The little starfish learns how to use his enthusiasm wisely and to stay balanced with self-control.

Hugo is a little starfish whose home is at the bottom of the wide ocean. He longs to visit the real world, and one day he decides to go and find it. Hugo's journey to happiness isn't quite as straightforward as he hopes though. He is sent to a series of different islands where he is taught important character lessons.
By the end of his journey, Hugo has visited fourteen islands, made many more friends, and, most importantly, learned how to be a better starfish.
