On a nice day at the beach, slippers can be found everywhere! The Hawaiian word, "Holoholo," means "to go for a walk, ride, or sail.” Little readers will enjoy seeing slippers holoholo on a wave, a hook, and on feet. They will also find slippers with a surfer, a crab, and a curious fish. No matter where the slipper goes, the waves will wash it back again to shore.
