This book entertains and educates readers about the Hawaiian goose, an endangered species, and about the fragile ecology of Hawaiʻi. In a fictionalized account of a year in the life of a Nene family, the author evokes a vivid picture of the environment, life cycle, and natural history of Hawaiʻi's state bird. Colorful illustrations enhance the words. The scientifically accurate information enables children to understand how this bird has been brought back from the brink of extinction and reestablished in the wild.
