Boardbook, 16 pp.

Part of a new series called Hawaiian Legends for Little Ones, Hina introduces kids ages 0-4 to one of Hawai’i's best-known dieties, the goddess of the moon. In simple, poetic language, this origin story gives small kids a taste of Hawai’i's rich history of storytelling. Three other titles in the series are: Naupaka, Pele Finds a Home, and Maui Hooks the Islands—all legends that will give kids a wider view of Hawaiian culture, history, and it's natural world.
