Love, Love, Love this book! The children and I read it, sung it and danced along. The very kiwi nature of this book is great. The incorporation of New Zealand animals and Māori lyrics really help connect with the reader, singer and dancer with the book. Even the older year 5 and 6 children joined me dancing and singing. The library was alive with music!
