Pele Finds A Home


Gabrielle Ahuliʻi

Boardbook, 16 pp.

Part of a new series called Hawaiian Legends for Little Ones, Pele Finds a Home introduces kids ages 0-4 to one of Hawaii's best-known deities, the volcano goddess, whose power is still on view today on the Island of Hawai’i where Kilauea continues to erupt. 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 its natural world.
