A story about a crab who learns what true leadership is all about. Mele is faster and stronger than all the other crabs and easily wins all the contests with her fellow crabs, but never wins their friendship or affection. Because she finds herself isolated, her heart does not reflect her name until she learns an important life lesson in a yellow bucket. It is in the bucket that Mele remembers her Tutu and the advice that will change her life! The lesson of the story of Mele—that true leadership is serving others (hoʻolawelawe in the Hawaiian language) – is based on what is seen in nature around us. We trust this will be an encouragement to your children as they face the challenges life brings.
