Peanut really loves to read. He brings books over all the time so we can sit and look through them. It’s such a pleasure to see my child so interested in reading. I took the time to read One Step at a Time, a Hugo the Starfish book. He enjoyed the pictures, but the story couldn’t hold his interest. We “flipped” through the pages and just pointed out the objects. Maybe it would be better for an older child, but the story seemed a little dry even by those standards.
From the author:
““ONE STEP AT A TIME Happiness Begins One Step At A Time”
is a great tale to teach commitment.
Hugo is a little starfish with a big sense of adventure. One day he finds an empty candy wrapper with a picture of a huge chocolate mountain. Usually when Hugo finds trash in the ocean it upsets him but this time what he found made him curious. Hugo discovers that his chocolate mountain is in fact a real mountain, which is called the Matterhorn and is located in Switzerland. He decides to set off on a journey to find this mountain – a huge challenge for a little starfish! Hugo learns to take one step at a time and to enjoy the journey as much as the destination. Join Hugo as he finds the secret of perseverance when the road gets difficult.
ONE STEP AT A TIME is a story about the need for perspective, whatever mountains we face. This book is the perfect way to each kids to divide big challenges into little chunks and to take things one step at a time.
