WIN: The Little Kiwi’s Matariki children’s picture book by Nikki Slade Robinson

The Little Kiwis Matariki book


We have a copy of the very cute The little Kiwi’s Matariki children’s picture book by  Nikki Slade Robinson to giveaway to one lucky reader. 

This gentle tale about celebrating Matariki, the Māori New Year, also includes an explanation of Matariki – it’s origins, traditions and how it is celebrated today in New Zealand. The little Kiwi is fast asleep in her burrow. A beam of moonlight shines right down into her burrow. She wakes, and realises it is time. Hurrying out into the night, she wakes each of her friends from their mid-winter slumber. ‘Kia tere! Hurry!’ she urges them.

The constellation is also shown, with the Māori names for each star. The text contains some simple words in Te Reo Māori alongside the English equivalent.

Nikki Slade Robinson has been an illustrator and author for many years. Most of all she loves drawing for children and has illustrated over sixty children’s books and readers including the popular Muddle & Mo and The Roadman Boogie.

You can purchase The Little Kiwis Matariki online from Paperplus.
