He Puka Ngohe

He Puka Ngohe is a fun, easy-to-use and relevant workbook, for those wanting to learn, practise and use everyday words in te reo Māori.

While the award-winning Kuwi & Friends Māori Picture Dictionary, holds the answers, the activity book allows the reader to practise in a creative way, to help to retain their reo Māori learnings.

Packed with challenges, activities, and games, all utilising visual cues from the dictionary, can assist with retention of language, to recall spoken and written words.

Following the success of Kuwi & Friends Māori Picture Dictionary, Kat Quin & Pānia Papa have come together again, to share a series of Māori language resources – designed for those at the beginning of their learning journey.

Designed for everyday use, in the whānau (family) or kura (school).
