DescriptionPart of a new series called Hawaiian Legends for Little Ones, Pele Finds a Home introduces kids ages 2-5 to one of Hawaii's best-known deities, the volcano goddess, whose power is still on view today on the Island of Hawaii where Kilauea continues to erupt.
In simple, poetic language, this origin story gives small kids a taste of Hawaii's rich history of storytelling.
Three other titles in the series are: Hina, Pele Finds a Home, Maui Slows the Sun, Hiiaka Battles the Wind, and Naupaka--all legends that will give kids a wider view of Hawaiian culture, history, and its natural world.
