E ola hou, e malama kekahi i kekahi. This is new life, a time to take care of one another. In the lush Hawaiian rainforest, beneath a canopy of ‘ohi’a trees, native flora and fauna live in harmony. As her time draws near, lovely Pulelehua discovers the mamaki that sheltered her as a child and leaves a newborn egg on one of its leaves. Follow along as the wise mamaki nurtures Ke’e Li’i through his stages of life, from a tiny black caterpillar to a magnificent Kamehameha butterfly. Beautifully written and illustrated, Pulelehua and Mamaki shows how closely the elements of the Hawaiian ecosystem are intertwined and how we can help preserve these natural wonders.
