Format: Hardcover
This is a book that should be in the library of every elementary school in the United States. The author has done a superb job in adapting many of the famous Mother Goose rhymes to the Hawaiian language. Some examples are:

Ua, ua go away,
Hilo's wet enough today,
And all the tourists want to play!

(ua is the Hawaiian word for rain)

Twinkle, twinkle little hoku
How I wonder all about you
Up above the `aina so high,
Like a kaimana in the sky.

(hoku is the Hawaiian word for star, `aina is the word for land or Earth and kaimana is the word for sky)

Not only will the children enjoy hearing some of the all-time best nursery rhymes, but they will learn some Hawaiian words in the process. It will also be an excellent supplement to any section on the history of Hawaii or the expansion of the United States.

A truly delightful collection of well-loved and known nursery rhymes with a fun Hawaiian twist. All Hawaiian and Pidgin English words are explained at the bottom of each rhyme, making this book ideal for those teaching or introducing keiki or adults to this wonderful language.

For proud tutus and anyone interested in Hawaii's customs and language, this is a lovely book to share with your children or grandchildren. The variations on the original Mother Goose stories are clever and fun.

My "Grandmother" name is "NeNe", sounds like knee-knee. This book is about the Hawaiian NeNe, pronounced Nay-Nay. When my granddaughter was 15 months old, I took her from Alaska to Hawaii for a long vacation. She was a land-locked mermaid in need of renewal in the ocean... I searched for books for her and found this one. She still loves it because it connects us and the special bond we have.
