Alohasaurus is about a lonely dinosaur living in a cave on the island of Kauaʻi who dreams of making friends. No one seems to want to play with him because of his size and the noises that he makes. Until one day, a small group of friends decides to be brave enough to be his friend. He teaches them about kindness, respect, and caring for the ‘aina, and they change his name to Alohasaurus.
