“This beautifully crafted book tells New Zealand’s story from over 2000 years. It cleverly aligns our growth as a country within the context of the world’s history. It is a multi layered resource that can be used with children and adults. Patricia Howitt’s stunning illustrations work in harmony with the text to tell our unique story. The Frankton staff are excited about using this amazing taonga in their classroom programmes.
Comments from staff…”This is the book I’ve been waiting for!” “This book will be a constant in my classroom, I can see how to use it for teaching history, art, reading, writing, geography, Te Reo and Tikanga Maori – it has it all!”
