Dove Review

This is a nice family documentary which covers various parts of Hawaii, including Kailua Kona, Honokoa’a, and Hilo, as well as the Pan’ewa Zoo and Parker Ranch. Watch as the host family travel through the Lava Tube Trail, make small volcanoes out of yogart cups and other items, attend a dance and a pig roast. Watch as they view the lava fields which are peppered with black rocks. See the first Hawaiian church and learn about the Polynesian culture. This video is very family friendly and a treat for the eyes. It also includes a bloopers section, a feature on building a volcanoe, as well as some historical information on the DVD. We easily approve this family DVD and we award it five doves, our highest rating.
