Ama's Picture Books

My grandmother recently left me her entire collection of picture books and children's literature. The entire collection is comprised of over 300 books. I am attempting to read as many as possible in 2014.

The Princess Kaiulani

The Princess Kaiulani - Helen P. Hoyt

written by Helen P Hoyt, illustrated by Jackie Black


I had a different book about Princess Ka'iulani when I was a kid. I didn't like this one as much as I remember liking that one. The frame of a grandmother writing letters to her granddaughter wasn't interesting to me. Also, there were parts of the story that I found strange (like when the grandmother writes that Ka'iulani is being sent to England to learn to be a real princess).
