by Amy McDaid; illustrations by Andrew Burdan

When Emily goes to the beach on a hot day with her larger-than-life Māmā, she is dismayed at the muddy, polluted beach and that they can’t swim. Emily sees Māmā in a new light when she chats in Cook Islands Māori to a large family group, and they begin to dance together.
