Baby Honu has just hatched from his egg. Will he find the courage to face sand crabs and sea birds on his perilous journey to the sea? And what wondrous creatures will he encounter in the ocean?
This classic tale of a turtle hatchling has been a favorite of island children for the past three years. It also features a glossary that teaches children about Hawaiian marine life.
ISBN No. 0-89610-285-8
Deep within the nest, in the comfort of his egg, Baby Honu slept. And as he slept, he dreamt. He had wonderful dreams, magical dreams, of splendid creatures afloat in starry seas...Baby Honu grew and grew.
-Excerpt from "Baby Honu's Incredible Journey"
