My First Board Book, Maori, For children c 0-2 years, Interest age: from c 3 years, Fiction, Pre-school & kindergarten, Picture books


Learning animal names in English and Maori is fun and interactive with this vibrant book featuring species native to New Zealand.

A wonderfully illustrated Donovan Bixley board book for learning animal names in both English and te reo Maori.
Featuring cow (kau), horse (hoiho) and sheep (hipi), but also bat (pekapeka), gecko (moko papa) and morepork (ruru). Perfect for Kiwi kids.

"Early concept boardbooks and picture books are essential as a way to both teach children language and begin their lifelong love of books." - The Sapling
