Author Christin Lozano began her career as a 4th-grade teacher and quickly discovered that her young students’ favorite part of the day was when she would read aloud to the class. The experience became so rewarding that she decided to become a Children’s Librarian. Today, she is the Reference Librarian at Kaimuki Public Library. After having read 100s of keiki stories with mainland themes, she became motivated to write her own story for local keiki. This is her first book.
