Mōrena Mōrena

Good morning

This book is about morning routines in the home as children get ready for school and kindergarten.

It’s the first in the Te Reo Singalong series to showcase a previously written song. The song, by Ruia Aperahama, is a joyful way to celebrate the new day with children, and the photos bring the song to life.
