A True Princess of Hawai’iby Beth Greenway
Nani has always dreamed of being a princess. When a real Hawaiian princess comes to her hometown of Hilo, Nani dresses in her best clothes.

Beth Greenway weaves the importance of kindness and generosity throughout this incredible story, based on the historical events of the 1880-1881 eruption of Mauna Loa on the Island of Hawai‘i.Learn more about this title.
