Product Description

“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.”

My Review

Many assume that your second child will have impeccable sharing skills since they are used to sharing with their sibling all the time. Unfortunately that is not the case here and I’ve struggled to teach sharing way more with my second born than I ever did with my first. I have recently been trying to teach my two year old son that children will not want to play with him if he keeps taking the toys and refusing to share. Just yesterday we were outside playing with the neighborhood children in the backyard and before you know it, my son is scooping up the toys that he does not want to share. Eventually the children became fed up and went to the top of the playground, an area where my son could not get to. It didn’t take long for my son to realize that, yes he had the toy, but it wasn’t as fun to play with all alone. I smiled from ear to ear as I watched him shout to one of the kids and offer to give him back the toy. The Secret to Happiness shares this same valuable lesson, in which Hugo discovers that all the treasures in the world will not bring him happiness if there’s no one to share them with. It’s a lesson as old as time and I will never stop preaching it to my children. This book is perfect for reading to young children and helping them to understand sharing, I highly recommend it!
