Te Paraikete Tauawhi – Nā Chris Gurney I tuhi, nā Lael Chisholm ngā pikitia I tā, nā Ngaere Roberts ngā korero I whakamāori

He rāwhiti te kakara. He kōhimu te tangi. He āniwaniwa te āhua… He aroha te maheni.

I mahi paraikete tauawhi a Nana mō te katoa o te whānau. He mea Motuhake, tō ia paraikete. He nui te aroha mō tō matau Nana.

He kōrero hari mō te whānau, mō te aroha, mō te ngaronga, engari ko te mea nui rawa atu, ko te aroha.

A young girl and her little brother love to visit their nana. Nana bakes things with them, plays games and takes them to the beach. They collect seashells together and line the pathway home with their treasures. Nana knits blankets for them all, including special motifs within the designs.

One day nana dies, and after the funeral the little girl hugs her special blanket and cries. She realises the blanket is full of special memories that will be with her even though nana is not.

A book to help children understand grief, Chris Gurney’s sensitively written prose shows children it’s okay to feel sad, and that we can find comfort in simple things.

Format: This book is a Paper back.

Language: This book is written in te reo Māori.

The English version is available here: The hug blanket
