Mele the Crab Finds the Way Out is the story about a crab who learns what true leadership is all about. Mele is faster and stronger than all the other all the other crabs and easily wins all the contests with her fellow crabs, but never wins their friendship and affection. Always winning and being first make Mele the winner in all the contests, except for the contest of life. Because she finds herself isolated, her heart does not reflect her name until she learns an important life lesson in a yellow bucket. It is in the bucket that Mele remembers her Tutu and the advice that will change her life! The lesson of the story of Mele is that true leadership in serving others (ho'owalewale in the Hawaiian language) ' is based on what is seen in nature around us. We trust this well be an encouragement to your children as they face the challenges that life brings.
