This book is one of a series written for Kamehameha Schools Intermediate Reading Program (KSIRP) students. They are designed to increase students' reading skills and their knowledge of Hawaiian history and culture by focusing on topics such as the Hawaiian monarchy. The books are written by KSIRP staff in an effort to provide young readers with culturally relevant materials in language arts and Hawaiian studies. The authors are pleased that the books have been well received by both educational and general audiences. KSIRP is a Community Education Division program of Kamehameha Schools/Bernice Pauahi Bishop Estate. It is operated in collaboration with the State of Hawai?i Department of Education at several intermediate schools throughout the state.

Lili?uokalani was born on September 2, 1838, to the High Chief Caesar Kapa?akea and High Chiefess Keohokalole. She was named Lili?u (Smarting) Kamaka?eha (The Sore Eye). It may seem as if the baby had an eye problem when she was born, but this was not so. The High Chiefess Kina?u, who gave Lili?u her name, was the one with the sore eye. Besides Lili?u Kamaka?eha, her Christian name was Lydia, a name given her at her baptism. It was not until years later that she was called Lili?uokalani.
