And here is one of them. True to Hawaiian story form, it contains a moral and a lesson for life in any circumstance. Grandpa has too many mangos and asks his grandchildren to share the extra with neighbors. They leave with a wagon full of mangos, but return with a wagon full of various gifts as their neighbors share with them. I love this book because it describes the generosity that is so prevalent in Hawaii, and the custom to give away any excess you may have to your friends or neighbors. Most of all, it is a story that makes the joy of sharing easy to understand to children of any age.

When we were waiting at the airport in Honolulu last week to catch a flight to Kona, I visited a book store and found this darling story. A grandfather notices that his tree is loaded with mangos and so he asks his grandchildren to take the excess fruit in their little wagon and share them with the neighbors. At each home they visit, the neighbors thank them and share something else in return. When they have given away all their mangos, they see that they have enough other food to enjoy a meal with their grandfather. Great lessons and bright, colorful illustrations in this darling book!
