"Maka the Tree Snail Discovers His Worth" Children's Book
This "Maka the Tree Snail Discovers His Worth" Children's Book from Partners in Development Foundation is available at Pop-Up Mākeke.
The picture book follows the story of Maka, an arboreal mollusk (tree snail), on his journey of self-acceptance and humility.
Over 700 species of tree snails lived throughout the upper land forests of the Hawaiian Islands. However, due to habitat destruction and invasive species, there are only between 25 and 40 species left today of tree snails.
The contemporary story dives into the rapid `ōhia death that has spread over 100,000 acres on Hawai'i Island. It can be used as a great educational tool as well because it also covers environmental issues that Hawaiian plants and animals are facing.
