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. The books are being translated from their original English text into Hawaiian through the efforts of the staff of the Hawaiian Studies Institute (HSI). Both KSIRP and HSI are Community Education Division programs of Kamehameha Schools Bernice Pauahi Bishop Estate. KSIRP is operated in collaboration with the State of Hawaii Department of Education at several intermediate schools throughout the state.

Kamehameha III: Kauikeaouli is a biography of the Hawaiian kingdoms third ruler. A biography is a written story of a persons life and is based upon historical records. This story tells about the significant events of Kauikeaoulis life. It starts with his birth and childhood and continues through his reign of nearly thirty years. From 1810 to 1893 the kingdom of Hawaii was ruled by eight monarchs. Of all these rulers Kauikeaouli reigned the longest. Under his leadership Hawaii changed from an isolated island kingdom to a recognized member of the modern world. Many of the things he did as king still influence life in Hawaii today.
