Too Many Mangos
Hardcover, 28 pp.
Based on the author's childhood experiences, Too Many Mangos is the story of two young Hawaiians, Kama and Nani, who help their grandpa pick mangos from the giant mango tree. They pick large, small, ripe, half-ripe, and even green mangos. But this time, they've picked too many, so it's time to load up the wagon and share the tasty treats with friends and family. Along the way, they show young readers the many ways to enjoy the treasured island fruit, and introduce their friendly neighbors around the block. Tammy Paikai's thoughtful text and Don Robinson's vibrant illustrations capture the joys of island living while teaching a valuable lesson about friendship and community.
