My Kalo Has Lau, Big and Green Product Description:

My Kalo Has Lau, Big and Green demonstrates to keiki how each part of the kalo plant is symbolized by the different generations within the Hawaiian ‘ohana. Kalo is regarded by many Hawaiians as the “staff of life”. The kalo produces new generations from the parts of a single plant and in a sense, it never dies because it is reborn many times over, through the “birth” of new plants. Such is the life of the ‘ohana; succeeding generations “sprout forth”, forever connected to preceding generations.

Hawaiians understood that life begins in the land and survival depends on the respect and proper care of the land, which in turn, provides sustenance. This type of respect and care is also indicative of how we care for and treat each other within the ‘ohana, which is the result of how we care for and tend to the land.

The book includes a glossary, math, science, and cultural activities, and includes an audio CD with narration and a music track to make reading and learning more fun.

Pua Aquino was born and raised in Makaha, O’ahu. She graduated from the University of Hawai’i at Manoa in 2008 with a BA degree in Hawaiian Studies, and currently works for Ka Pa’alana Homeless Family Education Program as their Native Hawaiian Curriculum Specialist.
