Annie Kai Lani Kai Lou: Maui’s Beloved Pup is the second children’s sing-along book from author and vocalist Bridget Burton. The book is beautifully illustrated and features the island adventures of English Springer Spaniel Annie Kai Lani Kai Lou—named in part after the famous Hawaiian queen and a word often associated with the sea and the sky. Annie’s island activities are as boundless as her energy—from hiking on Haleakala, taking the Road to Hana via scooter, horseback riding, and shopping at Lahaina! The accompanying Hawaiian ukulele music features Bridget as vocalist in each of the 8 verses. You can listen to the music online or download to your own device to play while you read at www.anniekailani.com/singalong or scan the code inside your book. As a bonus, the music is offered both with and without page-turning prompts.
Parents and grandparents should know that this is an excellent selection for toddlers and early readers. It's been shown that kids learn to read faster when words are set to music. Plus, with the Hawaiian island of Kauai as the backdrop for Annie's adventures, children get to virtually explore the island making it a great choice for kids who’ve traveled (or will travel) with their families to Maui. And it's a pup! Kids love dogs and puppies… and kids love Annie!
