Hawaii’s unique and diverse sea life is presented in a charming new coloring book that shows the rich bounty of reef life under the sea.

The Hawaiian word “i‘a” is defined as “fish or any marine animal.” Within “I‘a Sea Life Coloring Book,” descriptions of the colors, habits and habitats of sea creatures are hand-lettered by Hilo artist Jan Moon.

The rising popularity of coloring images for relaxation and meditation is acknowledged as a soothing therapy for the stresses of modern life.

Equally appreciated by children and adults, “I‘a Sea Life Coloring Book” allows anyone to float along with the charming inhabitants of Hawaiian coastal waters while learning about the precious ocean environment.

Published in Hilo by Petroglyph Press and priced at $9.95, “I‘a Sea Life Coloring Book” is available at Basically Books in Hilo and book and gift stores throughout Hawaii.

Moon has lived in Keaukaha since 1960. Having just a short walk from her home to the ocean inspired her to study and record the varied sea life she observes during her swimming and coastal explorations.

In addition to pen and ink drawings, Moon is well-known for her vibrant full-color paintings on silk of Hawaiian birds, sea creatures and exotic scenes. Moon’s illustrations are featured in “Hilo Legends,” also published by Petroglyph Press.
