Hugo The Happy Star Fish-The Last Bully

I've talked before about bullying and it is a big thing here for us. Not only have I been bullied but I see my children go through it as well.Needless to say I take every chance I get to speak out against bullying. Being a blogger I am blessed with the opportunity to review many products and books. Recently I was given a chance to review Huge The Happy Starfish The Last Bully by Suzy Liebermann
and I have to say I was thoroughly impressed by how great of a children's book this is. Like many of the bullying books I have come across it takes place in the under water world of sea life(I guess they have a bad bullying problem too!) the star fish runs into his friend Clooney Clownfish who was sad and crying as Bandit the Barracuda followed behind him teasing him about his looks. Hugo made sure to stand up for his friend Clooney and make sure he was aware that he was normal he spoke with Bandit but it did no good and he went off to bully more. Throughout the book fish after fish get bullied and their size grows and grows. Hugo does not give up! He takes a stand bully after bully forming the A.B.C.(Anti Bullying Club of course) and in the en the prevail the whole ocean bonds together to be friends and bullying is extinguished!

I really loved the message in this book. I love how it also throws in the Spanish translation of several phrases encouraging diversity. As an educator I see tons of bullying in schools and I intend on sharing it with my students! It is never to young to teach your children to respect other rather then be the bully. Preventing bullies starts at home be part of the solution and not the problem! In late February This book will be available in 7 different languages on amazon.com so if your children feel more comfortable learning in another language make sure to check out the ebook version.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

My girls are always telling me about "clubs" they have on the playground. This is one I'd LOVE to hear about!

This looks like a valuable book!
This book sounds like a great resource. My kids are focusing on some anti-bullying stuff in school this month. I will have to find this for my daughter to take in with her.

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)
