Pack your paper-bag lunch as it’s time for an excursion to the loko iʻa (fishpond)! Colorful photographs and illustrations along with informative text will take young readers to the few remaining loko iʻa in the Hawaiian Islands. Built hundreds of years ago by Hawaiians and formerly more than 450 in number, loko iʻa are an advanced form of aquaculture that continues to feed, educate, inspire, and strengthen our communities. Young readers will learn about the different types of traditional loko iʻa, the growth cycles of their inhabitants, and the work of their caretakers. The loko iʻa-themed set of six leveled readers and a Big Ideas Science Book is the second in a series of Hawaiian culture-based science readers called Pāhana ʻĀina Lupalupa (PAL).
