    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. With a slow pace and quiet tone, Lois Whitney enhances the serene atmosphere of the poetic text in the style of "The House That Jack Built." Hokuao Pellegrino reads the glossary of Hawaiian terms, as well as a note explaining poi and kalo. Ilima Loomis narrates her author's note. The authentic dialect of each narrator lifts the audiobook off the printed page. Listeners will want to visit Hawaii and experience a luau for themselves.
