No ke Anilā / Our Hawaiʻi Weather (bilingual)
A Hawaiian language book.
E aʻo i nā ʻōlelo kuʻuna no nā ʻano anilā like ʻole o Hawaiʻi nei.
Experience Hawaiʻi weather and learn traditional observations of natural phenomena in this keiki story. When we look outside, we can see signs in nature that tell us what the weather is like. If we see a koaʻe bird traveling far, it is a calm day. If there are kukui flowers on the ground, it is a windy day. If the sky is grey and cloudy, there is a good chance of rain. And with rain comes life! Ola ka honua!
