On Monday, March 31, 2015, Kim Oshiro, author of The Saga of Simon the Skinny Pig: Simon Saves the Day, visited Ka Waihona o ka Na'auao's kindergarten and first grade students. Aunty Kim, as the students affectionately called her, read her book, taught and then sang the Simon Jingle, then shared her two pet skinny pigs, Maggie and Molly, with the students. The haumana enjoyed their time learning about the writing process and skinny pigs! To purchase the book, go to Amazon.com.
