Tahi Rua Toru Whā

Tahi rua toru wha.

by André Ngāpō

illustrated by Phillip Paea

In this story, a dad and his son are getting ready in the morning. The son, who is also the narrator, copies each thing that Dad does. The story finishes with a lighthearted race to the car. Students will enjoy the warmth and humour between the characters, the pattern of the boy repeating Dad’s actions, the race, and the repetition of numbers in Māori.
