Originally written for the education team at Auckland War Memorial Museum, KKRKB books buyers are able to enjoy this book thanks to the stash held by author Jo van Dam.

The Adventures of Kaia the Korora features vibrant and exciting illustrations. Spot the hazards on each page, from discarded fishing hooks, to plastic bags floating in the water.

This book also features Environmental Facts to teach our tamariki how we can look after our oceans and marine creatures.

A great book to read as a charming story of discovery, or to be used as a teaching tool.

A much-loved book among school children from new entrants to year 6.
