Hush Little Keiki


Kim Vukovich

Boardbook, 26 pp.

This story is an instant classic to be shared between mothers and babies growing up in Hawaiʻi. The playful lullaby reminds us of the ever present sweet, gentle, and soothing naturescapes from around the islands. Watch mynah birds fly against the setting sun, humpbacks dance across the ocean stage, and evening rains reveal the starry night. Our local culture emphasizes the importance of being in harmony with our natural world. “Hush Little Keiki” delivers this eco- friendly message by expanding on the outdated children’s lullaby “Hush Little Baby.”
