First of all, I am using my dad's name and I am a girl ( like, how could a man read a girls book?! ) . Aloha Kanani is a beautifully illustrated book about a girl named Kanani who lives in Hawaii, Kauai with her hawaian dad and french mom. They own a shaved ice store and everything runs smoothly like the Kauai waves. Kanani is especally excited when her cousin, Rachel, comes to visit, and they have loads of things to do together, like surfing and hula dancing. The best part? Saving a monk seal! I love the illustrations and characters and I hope you get interested and buy it!

I really enjoyed this book! I love going to Hawaii, so I could relate to Kanani.
The book includes really detailed illustrations that go along with the story, too. I'm 11, so this book was shorter than most I read, but I still liked it. I'd reccomend this to any girl over 7 or 8.

As with many American Girl books, Kanani is a terrific read. My nine year old daughter and I read the book and loved the beautiful descriptions of Hawaii. There are also great words to describe feelings when Kanani writes in her diary and when her cousin (Rachel) writes in her diary. The situations and fears are very appropriate for kids in similar situations - very easy for kids to relate to. And, as always, there is an educational element when the book discusses Monk Seals and their behaviors. As well as, many native Hawaiian words and pronunciations.
Lastly, the few pictures in the book are beautiful! And they give a great visual element to feed the reader's imagination.
Definitely, a great book. A terrific gift for any 3rd, 4th or 5th grader.

Since we live in Hawaii, my daughter was super excited to read this book. The author tells a great story and beautifully describes the setting of Kauai; my daughter and I felt as if we were right there on the beach hanging out with Kanani!

My daughter has this when she got her wish. After visiting the showroom in Chicago, she wanted Kanani, the 2011 American girl of the Year. The book is nice and gives the lifestyle and landscape of Hawaii. The doll is also adorable.

We recently went to Hawaii and I bought this book for my 9 y.o.'s birthday. She really enjoyed the book. It brought back so many memories from Hawaii. Great for girl tweens.
