A Book of Colors with Audio CD

by Dr. Carolan
Hardbound, 32 pages
Illustrated by Joanna F. Carolan
For ages 2-7

Almost anyone who lives in Hawaii, or has visited, can relate to losing a pair of slippers. Dr. Carolan's third book takes up where his second book ("B is for Beach") leaves off: at the Honolulu Zoo looking for a lost pair of slippers.

Kids will have fun learning their colors as they see the various colored animals at the zoo. Get ready to be entertained by Dr. Carolan's wonderful rhymes and Joanna Carolan's bright illustrations.

Features Keli'i Kaneali'i, former member of HAPA and winner of numerous Na Hoku Hanohano awards.

The CD also includes Edith Kanakaole's "Na Waiho'olu'u" (The Colors) sung in Hawaiian and English by Kaneali'i with members of the Kapa'a Middle School Choir. Kirby Keough sets the mood with his 'ukulele and slack key guitar accompaniment.

Keli‘i Kaneali‘i

Keli‘i Kaneali‘i began singing at the age of six with his church choir. Born and raised on ‘Oahu, he is the youngest of 15 children. Keli‘i was a founding member and former lead vocalist for the music group Hapa. After 18 years with Hapa, during which time he was awarded six Na Hoku Hanohano Awards, Keli‘i left to pursue his solo career. When Keli’i is not recording or performing his contemporary ballads, traditional Hawaiian songs and sharing his aloha around the world, he enjoys spending time in his garden on the island of Kaua‘i where he lives with his wife and sons. Keli‘i says he gets his song writing inspiration while working with the land.
