You Should Meet Duke Kahanamoku by Laurie Calkhoven- ADVISABLE

Calkhoven, Laurie. You Should Meet Duke Kahanamoku, PICTURE BOOK. Simon Spotlight, 2017. $3.99. 

Duke Kahanamoku is one of the most famous Hawaiians. He was born at the turn of the twentieth century and took part in many Olympic swimming events. He was also an amazing surfer who brought surfing to renown around the world. He was friendly and believed in showing love to those he met. This book chronicles his life and historic moments. Young readers will be interested in this unorthodox historical figure and reading about his accomplishments will give them a different perspective on what makes a strong athlete. I enjoyed learning about him and I think this would be a good book for those practicing their reading skills. EL- ADVISABLE. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian
