What others say about Maranga Mai:
“One of the best gifts my daughter received for her first birthday was a copy of Maranga Mai. We enjoyed this book so much that we have since bought four others in the Te Reo Singalong series. They’re all fantastic. The simple yet clever songs make learning new words fun and easy, and the books are beautifully illustrated too.” ~ Julia Masters, mum
