    Tiana Kamen shows off her “Keiki to Farm” book sponsored by the state Department of Health, that launched at the Kauai Community Market at Kauai Community College in Puhi Saturday.

The books just arrived Thursday, and Tiana Kamen (congratulations on your master’s degree in nutrition!) was so excited to bring the “Keiki to Farm” book intended for ages 3 to 9, pre-K to third grade to launch at the Kauai Community Market Saturday at Kauai Community College in Puhi (welcome home, Bev Pang, who got to run into Annette Baptiste!).

Kenny Ishii (he’s got Harvey Maeda and the Kauai Classic Cars coming to First Saturday in front of Ono Family Restaurant in Kapaa!) was excited to try the new Kauai Sausage Company hot dogs (Allan van Zee had his without the bun?) by Zack Wilczewski, who had already run out of some dogs … he’s got more coming up Saturday!

Congratulations to Mary Lardizabal and the Kapaa Middle School Choir and Ukulele Band on another successful Aloha Keiki Fest fundraiser (she even had donation fishbowls for all the participating schools!), where Jeremy Brown and the Kilauea School got to show off their upcoming “Madagascar Jr.” production that will open March 8 and 9 at the Kilauea School cafeteria.

Finally, aloha — Yukie Lynn DeSilva!

    Tiana Kamen and her crew have produced such an excellent book for keiki and all of us. I have sent two to my grandchildren in California and Alaska. It is absolutely beautiful and has ideas that can be used anywhere, even if they don’t live in Hawaii. I recommend that folks stop by her booth at the Kauai Community College Saturday and look it over. Extremely creative.
