Alphabet Hukilau in Hawaiʻi

Alphabet Hukilau in Hawaiʻi


Author: Vera Arita | Illustrator: Mariko Merritt | Hardcover

Join us at a hukilau in Hawaiʻi!

Let’s cast our net into the sea and watch what we catch—
instead of catching Butterflyfish or a Rainbow wrasse,
we catch the entire alphabet from A to Z!

It’s a fun way to learn the alphabet and a few facts about some of Hawaii’s colorful and amazing sea life. A photographic glossary of fish is included.
