Noa the Puhi Learns to Let Go is the story of a Hawaiian eel, or puhi, who discovers the importance of releasing negative emotions that harm his relationships with others. Noa has a problem and that is his tendency to hold on to hurts and misunderstandings with the same energy that he holds on to things with his jaws. Noa finally heeds the kind and wise advice of his Tūtū (grandparent), and with the encouragement and support of his friends, he learns a valuable lesson that holds wisdom for all of us.
Noa the Puhi Learns to Let Go is the fourth story in the series about the adventures of ocean creatures. Set in the context of Hawaiian culture, the books illustrate the life lessons which highlight the importance of how intergenerational wisdom influences our children. The book includes a read-along CD narrated by Robert Cazimero, featuring an original song “You Have to Give It All Up” by Aaron Mahi.
