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.

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.

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li
