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.


Sumorella - Esther Szegedy, TAKAYAMA

written by Sandi Takayama, illustrated by Esther Szegedy


This book, along with Keaka and the Liliko'i Vine and The Three Little Hawaiian Pigs and the Magic Shark (both written by Donivee Martin Laird and illustrated by Carol Jossem) are Hawaiian retellings of Western fairy tales. They're all fun and enjoyable, but I'd rather read Hawaiian tales over Hawaiian retellings.
