It’s a who-lives-where and who-eats-whom of Hawai‘i’s diverse environments and their unique inhabitants. You and your young adventurers will cover a lot of ground, reading about energy, food chains, and the dependent and interdependent relationships of organisms in the rainforest, salt marsh, and coral reef.

Target Grade Level: 2—but readers of all ages may enjoy and learn something new!

While versatile enough to be a stand-alone resource, this Big Ideas Science Book is part of the habitat-themed set of Pāhana ‘Āina Lupalupa (PAL), a series of Hawaiian culture-based science readers. PAL integrates Hawaiian language, culture, and place-based content with literacy and science concepts that meet national standards. Developed in ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i and translated into English, this exciting series was created through partnerships among a group of Hawai‘i educators, literacy specialists, and Hawaiian-language resource developers in consultation with scientists and cultural practitioners.
