In Suzy Lieberman's One Step at a Time, the story focuses on Hugo the starfish's commitment to getting to the top of the Matterhorn in Switzerland. He is required to follow a number of steps and instructions on a list in order to meet his goal. His persistence is rewarded with the accomplishment of reaching the top and getting a helicopter ride back to the ocean thanks to his friend Manta.
The illustrations were a little crazy but the story and the message are good. My 8 year old enjoyed the story and looking up both Switzerland and the Matterhorn on a map. It was a little geography lesson paired with encouragement to stay focused and proceed one step at a time to meet a goal.
