Part of a new series called Hawaiian Legends for Little Ones, Naupaka introduces kids ages 0-4 to one of Hawai’i's best-known love stories that explains why the native plant naupaka--which can be found on the beach and in the mountains--blooms only half a flower. 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: Hina, 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.
