Looking for art projects for your ʻohana, which also allow you to expand your knowledge of Hawaiian language and culture and teach you how to take care of our diverse island environments? Look no further than the new bilingual coloring books from Kū-A-Kanaka designed for adults and children to color together using markers, colored pencils, gel pens, or watercolors. Each coloring book focuses on a different island environment and our responsibility to take care of its special resources. Ideal for families looking for interactive Hawaiian language resources. A unique design allows for the books to be read (and colored!) in ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi in one direction, and then turned and read in English in the other.
“Mālama i ke kahawai” - “Taking care of the river” focuses on the importance of taking care of Hawaiʻi’s streams and the various native species that live in them.
