This is a nice story about surfing and Hawaiian history. A little girl wants to learn to surf and the night before her uncle teaches her, she has a dream about the watermen and waterwomen of Hawaii throughout the ages. The book includes a CD with the narrative of the book as well as a glossary of the Hawaiian words used, surf lingo and a short biography of the people mentioned in the story. Great story to read (or listen to) with your children.
