The ʻāina-based readers are the second set of books developed by Lānaʻi CHC in an effort to create relevant educational resources for the island’s youth. The first set of books debuted in 2021 and other communities throughout Hawaii expressed interest in developing similar resources for their own places. The second set was supported partially by Pūlama Lānaʻi and Lānaʻi Community Benefit Fund.
