The eighth title in the Hawaiian Legends for Little Ones series, Lea Goddess of Canoe Builders introduces kids ages 0-4 to one of Hawai‘i’s lesser-known dieties, Lea.

In simple, poetic language, this origin story gives small kids a taste of Hawai‘i’s rich history of storytelling.

Lea, the goddess of canoe builders, lives in the forest but will often fly over the shore, keeping an eye on the many canoes she has helped carvers create. As an ‘elepaio bird, she guides carvers to the greatest trees in the forest and makes sure their wa‘a are steady and strong.
