Te Haerenga

The Journey

In this story, an adorable kiwi travels around New Zealand collecting souvenirs and pronouncing Māori place names.

And there’s a delightful surprise for the kiwi when she returns home from her travels.

The illustrations contain plenty of visual interest and talking points, and the pronunciation tips will interest children and adults.
