Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This is a colorful, fact-filled book that talks about the climate, flora and fauna in and around Hawaii. It begins with the whales in the wintertime and comes full circle back to them. It's an interesting story, with some flaps to lift and a "mini magazine" on each page with a report of animal sightings or some facts inside. It is a little dry and long to read at one setting, but our girls enjoyed it when I read one season at a time.
