Ngā Āhua


Join in the fun and make up your own actions to this book about shapes and body parts.

A boy makes a triangle with his arms. A girl makes a diamond with her legs. At the end, all the friends make a circle.

The gorgeous illustrations on the right hand pages give the children the chance to search for more shapes when the song is over. This book gives children and teachers plenty of opportunity for language development.

Author – Sharon Holt, Illustrator – Joshua David Morgan
