Stewart Williams, B. J. (1999). Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop. Retrieved from

This book is one of a series originally written by faculty in a Kamehameha reading program. The books were designed to increase students' reading skills and their knowledge of Hawaiian history and culture by focusing on topics such as the Hawaiian monarchy. Some of these books have been translated from their original English into Hawaiian through the efforts of the staff of the Kamehameha Schools Hawaiian Studies Institute. We are pleased at the reception both the English and the Hawaiian editions have received from educational and general audiences.

"Her love for the young was great, and it was a pretty sight to see her surrounded by a group of children to whose pleasure she was ministering." Perhaps no other single sentence portrays Pauahi so accurately and so completely as this remembrance of her, published at the time of her death. It captures the essence of the princess and her legacy: love, children, service. What a beautiful experience to have been in the company of the princess and to have known her in person! May the young readers for whom this book was written be drawn closer to Pauahi. May readers both young and old be inspired to follow her example of service to all.
