              A young boy learns about the customs around celebrating Matariki from his grandfather. They watch the stars from the top of a mountain, prepare their offering of food for the gods, and the boy learns about Te Waka o Rangi and the tradition of calling out the names of loved ones w...ho have passed away so that they can become stars. Just before Matariki the following year, the boy's Koro suddenly dies. He gathers and prepares the food offering and asks each family member to come with him up the mountain when Matariki is due to rise, but they all make excuses, and he is disheartened. But when he tells them what Koro taught him, they all climb the mountain before sunrise, follow the rituals Koro carried out and call out Koro's name so that he can become a star.

              A te reo Maori board book that shares how to talk about feelings through a friendship between a child and their dog. Through the up-close expressive faces of a child and their dog, we learn the Maori words for a range of feelings. Taku kuri pai - my good dog. He hatakehi ia. My d...og is happy ... angry ... excited ... sad ... shy ... hopeful ... Taku hoa pumau, my faithful friend. This simple board book is a starting point to talk about how we feel. Key words describe the many emotions a dog can go through in a short time, while the expressions on the faces of the people nearby convey a whole new raft of feelings as they respond and react. And so the story becomes one of friendship and how our friends make us feel. This new board book is a multi-layered delight joining Mihi and Koro in Gavin Bishop's powerful series to share with the smallest children.
