Please join us for a very special story time on July 10th Wednesday morning at 10am.

Local children’s book author Kealani Netane will share her brand-new book Tala Learns to Siva. 

Tala wishes that she could dance the traditional Samoan dance, the taualuga, just like her Aunty Sina. But Tala’s legs are too bouncy, her arms are too stiff, and she doesn’t have Aunty’s ‘glow’ when she dances. When Tala prepares to perform at her Grandma’s birthday, she freezes on the stage. Will she find the strength and inspiration to help her dance?Newcomer Kealani Netane crafts a heartwarming story about finding your inner strength through the love and guidance of your family. New York Times bestselling illustrator Dung Ho’s cheerful colors and sweet characters bring this loving story to life, making this the perfect gift for little ones who are learning how to follow their hearts and make their own paths.” – Scholastic Library website
