The Hawaiian language — ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi — is a beautiful, rich language. Thanks to the internet, ʻōlelo can now be heard across the globe.
Read-aloud versions of childrenʻs books in English are readily available online. And now thanks to Kamehameha Publishing, books in ōlelo are, too.
I am pleased to feature No ke Ahilā — Our Hawaiʻi Weather, a delightful bilingual boardbook for keiki, written by Kaulana Domeg and Mahealani Kobashigawa and read by fluent ʻōlelo speaker, and wonderful presenter, Makiʻilei Ishihara.
