About the book:
Have you ever been to Hawaii? Let Maya & Filippo show you around! Learn important facts about the islands’ geography and history. Discover the culture of Hawaii with its lei, ukeleles and hula dance. But there’s more. Learn how to live the spirit of Aloha with Maya & Filippo. 

If you enjoy free kids' books for kindle ages 4-8, this will be a wonderful introduction to Maya & Filippo's world of cruise travel.

What I thought: 
This is a great book to introduce kids to the history and geography of Hawaii through interesting facts about culture, beliefs, and the use of the island's local words. Maya & Filippo have an Aloha adventure that is fun  and easy to read. The author does a fine job with capturing the Aloha spirit in this book. Kids are sure to love this book as well as all the  Maya & Filippo's adventures books.

I like that the  book also has a short quiz at the end, to test reading/listening skills, along with some facts about Hawaii. The book also has colorful illustrations that enhance the text.
