Old MacDonald had a farm ... E-I-E-I-O! Children will love to join in and sing along to this much-loved nursery rhyme, now in te reo Maori!
"I a Koro Meketanara tetahi pamu - TI-HAI-TI-HAI-HAU . . ." E mohio whanuitia ana tenei waiata. Engari, inaianei to Koro Meketanara he pamu ataahua kei Aotearoa tonu - a, kei taua pamu etahi kararehe whakaharahara - kei te aha ano ratou inaianei?
He parekareka tenei pukapuka pikitia ma te kohungahunga na Donovan Bixley, koia nei tetahi o nga kaita pikitia e tino kaingakautia ana ki Aotearoa nei, ko etahi o ana pukapuka atu, ko NGA WIRA O TE PAHI [THE WHEELS ON THE BUS] me te LOOKY BOOK, he mea tino hokohoko atu i Aotearoa nei.
With the same vibrant illustrations as the original book, the te reo Maori translation retains the cheeky humour and energy of the classic English-language edition.
