  • Wētā Went Walking

    Wētā Went Walking

    written by Kay Hancock

    illustrated by Fraser Williamson

    When Wētā goes walking in the bush, Rat decides to go hunting ... Will Wētā be safe? Does he know Rat is following him?

    This dramatic, open-ended story is ideal for fostering students’ enthusiasm and confidence as readers. The rhythmic, repetitive language encourages and supports students to read along with the teacher, even from their first day of school.

    Taonga

    Written by Kiwa Hammond

    Illustrated by Adele Jackson

    When Mahi and her cousin Hani go to Nan’s house after school, they tell her about their school project – to write about something that is a taonga to them. After talking with Nan, both children realise what they will write about.

    While this story has particular relevance to Māori students, many students will identify with the ideas of whānaungatanga (special family relationships) and taonga (a treasure or something that is special to a person).

  • Christmas jandals.

    The Crocodile’s Christmas Jandals

    by Margaret Mahy

    illustrated by Gavin Mouldey

    The crocodile loves his new Christmas jandals. But while he is at a beach barbecue, the waves steal away one of his blue jandals and all he can find is a left-foot red jandal. Later in the week, the crocodile wears the odd jandals to a football match. He discovers that he is sitting next to a girl who is wearing his jandal! They are both delighted to have found their missing jandals, and as well as finding his missing jandal, the crocodile is very happy to have found a new friend.
