A is for Aloha… Z is for Zori! This updated edition of Hawaii’s beloved alphabet book has been redesigned with bold color photographs featuring the islands’ unique cultures and natural beauty. Hawaii’s young children will delight in seeing their everyday pleasures – eating noodle soup, dancing hula, wearing plumeria lei, and watching birds and geckos. Children who live elsewhere will enjoy discovering the unfamiliar and be pleased to find similarities to their own lives. Parents and teachers will appreciate the section with information about the Aloha State, facts about the images that represent each letter, and expert guidance on the sharing of the book with their children.
