Almost as good as living it, we love experiencing this life through authors who use imagination and creativity to bring these stories to life. These stories are meticulously written and delivered in traditional Hawaiian children's books, ranging from well-known mythology across the Pacific Islands to different cultural practices. Here are five of our favorite books that can inspire everyone.
