Hush Little Keiki
Hush Little Keiki is a playful lullaby to be shared between mothers and children. The melodic text reminds readers of the ever-present gentle and soothing naturescapes experienced around the islands. Watch mynah birds fly against the setting sun, humpbacks dance across the ocean stage, and evening rains reveal the starry night.
Hush Little Keiki expands on the traditional children's lullaby, "Hush Little Baby." This story emphasizes the relationship between a child and their environment by highlighting the natural wonders of the Hawaiian islands.
