SURF'S UP FOR KIMO
This surfing story comes from the heart for young, (3-8) up and coming surfers. Each page is filled with brightly colored North Shore realism, allowing kids to relate to kids.
Borders of Hawaiian foliage common to this area flow along the pages. A back glossary describes the leaves and some of their uses. For instance, the banana leaf is not only described by its use as a natural steamer for the imu, an outside oven, but includes the author's favorite banana bread recipe. Kids are also encouraged to find a few hidden pictures and learn about some interesting facts
