            Our children have the energy, capacity, and passion to create and nurture a global culture in which inclusion, acceptance, respect, and participation are the core values that underpin a human being's every interaction. As parents and carers, our job is to help our children take t...heir first steps along that path. Raising truly globally minded, and socially conscious children happens at home and in the community. Children can be inspired, equipped, and mobilized to make a difference in the world. By encouraging values such as responsible and kind use of social media, respect, open mindedness, empathy, a sense of community, parents can help to shape a new generation of emotionally intelligent, outward-looking, politically ethical world citizens. Relevant to parents of children of all ages - from toddlers to teens - the book gives practical advice on how to talk to your children, the vocabulary to use, and activities and projects you can undertake with your children, from planting a tree to keeping a gratitude diary to cooking themed cuisines. And you'll find out how to model global citizenship through your own day-to-day actions.

            Highly Irregular: Why Tough, Through, and Dough Don't Rhyme-And Other Oddities of the English Language (Hardback)

            Maybe you've been speaking English all your life, or maybe you learned it later on. But whether you use it just well enough to get your daily business done, or you're an expert with a red pen who never omits a comma or misplaces a modifier, you must have noticed that there are so...me things about this language that are just weird. Perhaps you're reading a book and stop to puzzle over absurd spelling rules (Why are there so many ways to say '-gh'?), or you hear someone talking and get stuck on an expression (Why do we say How dare you but not How try you ?), or your kid quizzes you on homework (Why is it eleven and twelve instead of oneteen and twoteen ?). Suddenly you ask yourself, Wait, why do we do it this way? You think about it, try to explain it, and keep running into walls. It doesn't conform to logic. It doesn't work the way you'd expect it to. There doesn't seem to be any rule at all. There might not be a logical explanation, but there will be an explanation, and this book is here to help. In Highly Irregular, Arika Okrent answers these questions and many more. Along the way she tells the story of the many influences--from invading French armies to stubborn Flemish printers--that made our language the way it is today. Both an entertaining send-up of linguistic oddities and a deeply researched history of English, Highly Irregular is essential reading for anyone who has paused to wonder about our marvelous mess of a language.

            Celebrating te reo Maori, one of the official languages of Aotearoa soon to be released Rhyme & Reo: aeiou. This book aims to help teachers, parents and children to learn and have fun with te reo Maori. Passionate about te reo Maori, author Jessica Ngatai says: "I love ...to hear people giving te reo a go. I meet lots of people who are really keen to learn and speak te reo, but haven't had the opportunity to learn the basics, or lack the confidence to try at all." Rhyme & Reo will help people build confidence to use and enjoy te reo with their children and whanau. This delightfully illustrated book features quirky Kiwi poems, which weave reo through the English text, with explanatory notes on the pronunciation of the vowel sounds appearing in a side-bar on each page. These fun rhymes are designed to help readers learn the correct pronunciation of the basic vowel sounds used in te reo Maori. Getting these five basic sounds right will enable readers to try any Maori word with confidence. This book will be the first released in a series intended to build up the use of te reo at early childhood centres, in schools and in the home.
