Arapū Toi

Author(s): Moira Wairama

Te Reo Maori Language | NZ Book Awards for Children & Young Adults 2020 Shortlist | Wallcharts & Friezes

Arapū Toi combines short, easy to understand, poems for all ages with artwork that epitomises the idea that "a picture is worth a thousand words".
Gentle rhythmic te reo Māori, with kupu that emphasise ideas of wellness, is used to describe the sights, sounds and feelings of everyday life — like a zip seizing up on a coat — alongside more poetic images such as the darkness or the night or a whale singing in the depths of the ocean.

He tino taonga tenei pukapuka mo nga tamariki i te kura puhou me nga kura takawaenga hoki. Anei nga rotarota, nga whakaahua mo ia reta o te arapu Maori, he whakaahua tini hoki mo ia reta kia tuhono pakitara.
This book and frieze set is a taonga (precious thing) for children from early childhood to primary level. Featuring poems and illustrations for each letter of the Maori alphabet, it also includes a wall frieze.
