E ola hou, e malama kekahi i kekahi. This is new life, a time to take care of one another. In the lush Hawaiian rainforest, beneath a canopy of 'ohi'a trees, native flora and fauna live in harmony. As her time draws near, lovely Pulelehua discovers the mamaki that sheltered her as a child and leaves a newborn egg on one of its leaves. Follow along as the wise mamaki nurtures Ke Li'i through his stages of life, from a tiny black caterpillar to a magnificent Kamehameha Butterfly. Beautifully written and illustrated, PULELEHUA AND MAMAKI shows how closely the elements of the Hawaiian ecosystem are intertwined and how we can help preserve these natural wonders.Click here to purchase.
