A Note From the Publisher
Also available with the hardcover picturebook. Ohana Means Family (1 Hardcover/1 CD) [With CD (Audio)] 9781430144595
AudioFile Earphones Award "Love for the traditions and culture of the Hawaiian people is evident in this audiobook, which includes the voices of three narrators from the Aloha State. Traditional music, sound effects of laughter and lapping waves, and Hawaiian words transport listeners to the countryside as a family prepares the poi for a traditional farm-to-table luau. ... The authentic dialect of each narrator lifts the audiobook off the printed page." AudioFile Magazine
