Kalo Boy Book Now in Hawaii State Libraries

Kalo Boy is now available for check out at Hawaii State Library on ‘Oahu, on the Holoholo Bookmobile, and at Wailuku, Lanai and Molokai Libraries.

“I gave away copies at our Keiki Story Time at Lahaina District Court on April 16th (see photos below). We read books on the topics of kalo and ‘ohana and I shared briefly on the ways to read and engage in conversation using the Kalo Boy story and prompts within it. Some caregivers recognized the book and already had a copy.

I shared about Kalo Boy at the PLA Conference with a few librarians who have experience working with community partners. The sessions about SEL, partnerships, and programming holistically (centered on relationships and social emotional learning) were engaging and affirming!”
