"The new children's book, It's Snowing in Hawaii is a fun look at the places and people in Hawaii and how they may react to a snow event."
"Blending Hawaiian highlights with blizzardy fun, Mike Guardia's light tale is both amusing and rhythmic. Melanie Stephens' illustrations are rich in color and life, bringing extra joy to the text with subzero tropical flare...an interesting twist to a sightseeing journey through one of Hawaii's most popular areas."
- The Children's Book Review
"Melanie Stephens' illustrations are lively and fun, and help bring the tale to life"

This books is well drawn with beautiful, bright, colorful pictures. It’s written well for a kid to understand.
Now the statement about this book says it’s in Rhyme. If it was I didn’t notice it, so it was a very low key rhyme, not like Dr. Seuss rhyme. Also in the story it talks about things that I don’t think exist in Hawaii, why would anybody own a Snowmobile or a bobsled in Hawaii? And in one of the pictures it shows a native person wearing Eskimo type clothing… Just can’t think too hard about this one.
And it of course has DRM, so I have to subtract a point for that.
The author takes us, through lyrical verse, on a magical trip around the Honolulu, Hawaii area. He artfully interweaves verses about typical Honolulu highlights, adding an interesting twist. Rather than sun and sand we have snow and ice.
What are we to do? Adapt to the new reality and make the most of it. The author creatively takes the splendor of paradise and covers it with the novelty of snow and ice. Mixing snow and sun in Hawaii make for a lot of fun.
Children will love the rhyme and the fanciful story. Adults will marvel at the creativity and imagination.
The illustrations are detailed and compliment the author’s writing exactly. I especially loved the snowmen wearing grass skirts, seashell buttons, and pineapple eyes.
A whimsical and fun read for all ages and across all states, this book will have you wanting to book your next vacation to Hawaii – sun or snow!
