This is a wonderful tale about the Golden Plover, otherwise known as the Kolea here in Hawaii. It's a rather long story, with lots of details, and younger children will likely lose interest quickly (our youngest did.) Our oldest learned about this bird in school and enjoyed the story, but we still needed to break it up into two reading sessions. Nice illustrations as well; overall a great book.
