I Am a Creature of the Tides: What Am I? / He I‘a Wau: E Kuailo Mai i Ku‘u Inoa!
Recommended Age: Ages 4 and up
Readers are taken on a guessing-game tour of tide pool residents, from the ‘opihi (a limpet) to the hā ‘ue‘ue (pencil urchin). Fully illustrated, this book depicts sea creatures in abstract close up and then allows young readers to identify them on the next page. This bilingual “flip” book tells the same story in English and in ölelo Hawai‘i .
This story was written and illustrated by students of Kanu o ka ‘Äina New Century Public Charter School, located in rural Waimea in the Kohala district of Hawai‘i Island. Originally printed in 2004, this revised edition also features an updated cover design.
