Food Author Shar Tuiasoa
Aloha, friends! Grab your art supplies and your favourite snack as author and illustrator Shar Tuiasoa talks about food, family, and culture.
Shar will read PUNKY ALOHA, a story centered around a young girl’s connection with her grandmother, who is making her famous banana bread--but she needs butter! As Punky goes on her journey in search of butter for grandma, she learns more about her culture, her community, and her island of O’ahu.
After the story, draw lush vegetation and tasty canoe foods alongside Shar as you think of foods that have a special meaning in YOUR heart.
