Kamehameha IV : Alexander Liholiho

By Ruby Hasegawa Lowe


Description
This book is one of a series originally written by faculty in a Kamehameha reading program. The books were designed to increase students reading skills and their knowledge of Hawaiian history and culture by focusing on topics such as the Hawaiian monarchy. Some of these books have been translated from their original English into Hawaiian through the efforts of the staff of the Kamehameha Schools Hawaiian Studies Institute. We are pleased at the reception both the English and the Hawaiian editions have received from educational and general audiences.

Excerpt
With the passing of Kamehameha III came a new era-one bringing Prince Alexander Liholiho to the throne as Kamehameha IV. The new king, like his predecessors, had great love for his people and set about to help them. And, like those kings before him, he worked and learned to blend the old ways with new ways. Here is the story of the fourth monarch of Hawaii.
