  • Matariki Book and cd
    Matariki Book and cd
    This children's picture book is in te reo Maori. It includes a song CD. No prior knowledge of te reo Maori is required by the children or adults using the book. The story/song is about Matariki, the Maori New Year, which is celebrated in New Zealand in May/June. The story is about a family who awake to see the Matariki star cluster at dawn and then enjoy a visit from their extended family members, including singing, eating and playing together. Matariki stars are not visible in the evening, so the children make stars with their sparklers to celebrate at the end of the day. As a special feature for this book, a video demonstrating actions for the song is available at www.tereosingalong.co.nz. Each Te Reo Singalong book features an easy-to-learn sentence structure in te reo. This book features the sentence structure "he pai ki ahau..." which means "I like..." By putting on the song CD and opening the book, the reader can join in with the song and follow the actions and sounds as they enjoy the book. The back of the book contains information about Matariki, English translation, guitar chords and a list of extension ideas for parents and teachers.
    The book is number 6 in an award winning series called Te Reo Singalong, which won at the Maori Language Awards in November 2013.
