He Huarākau (Singalong Book & CD)
He Huarākau – By Sharon Holt
This book looks at the Māori words for many fruit commonly eaten in New Zealand. The beautiful illustrations give an insight into the many places where fruit can be found and bought – including a community kai shed at the side of the road. Children in the story ask and answer which fruit they like best, and there’s a surprise favourite at the end!
