Description of this Book

At last, a new Matariki picture book for teachers, parents and children to enjoy during Maori New Year celebrations. The newest book in the popular award winning Te Reo Singalong series follows a family through their Matariki celebrations over the course of a day. The family wakes at dawn to see the Matariki star cluster and the book takes the family as visitors arrive for a traditional Matariki feast. As the evening draws in, the children create their own stars using sparklers.

Each Te Reo Singalong book includes a song CD, English translation, guitar chords and extension ideas. This book also includes information about Matariki.

You will love the gorgeous illustrations and the beautiful song.
