Description

Join us at a hukilau in Hawai‘i! Let’s cast our net into the sea and watch what we catch—instead of catching Butterflyfish or a Rainbow wrasse, we catch the entire alphabet from A to Z! It’s a fun way to learn the alphabet and a few facts about some of Hawai‘i’s colorful and amazing sea life. A photographic glossary of fish is included.
