This book is available both in bilingual and all-Hawaiian language versions.

Makela Bruno-Kidani is a Hawaiian language instructor and former director of Punana Leo o Waimea.

Maile Ka‘ai is a Maui-born artist known for her work featuring native Hawaiian flora and fauna.

The ‘Aha Punana Leo, Inc. was established in 1983 to revitalize the Hawaiian language, primarily through schools taught entirely in Hawaiian. In 1896, a law was passed banning the use of Hawaiian as a medium of education in Hawai‘i’s classrooms. After 90 years, this law was reversed in 1986. The ‘Aha Punana Leo has grown to include eleven preschools, three K-12 sites, a scholarship program and other educational programs that promote the growth of Hawaiian as a daily language.
