Mālama i ke Kai: He Puke Kala no ka Lehulehu / Take Care of the Ocean: A Coloring Book for All Ages (bilingual)
Written by Pōlanimakamae K. Kahakalau Illustrated by Luana K. Zablan
Mālama i ke Kai shares traditional ways our kūpuna lived in harmony with the ocean and how we can mitigate modern abuse and pollution of our ocean environment.
Looking for art projects for your ‘ohana which also allow you to expand your knowledge of Hawaiian language and culture and teach you how to take care of our diverse island environments? Look no further than the new bilingual coloring books from Kū-A-Kanaka, designed for adults and children to color together using markers, colored pencils, gel pens, or watercolors. Each coloring book focuses on a different island environment and our responsibility to take care of its special resources. Ideal for families looking for interactive Hawaiian language resources. A unique design allows for the books to be read (and colored!) in ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i in one direction, and then turned and read in English in the other.
