Gabriel - 8 years old
My son Gabriel is learning to swim this summer and loved this sweet book about Pono, his best friend and his mom/swim teacher. He read it first and then immediately asked me to read it to him. We loved the illustrations and learning a bit of Hawaiian (spoiler - Pono means "righteousness").
