Animals of Aotearoa: Explore and discover New Zealand’s wildlife – by Gillian Candler & Ned Barraud

Animals of Aotearoa is a must-have lavishly illustrated compendium for children curious about New Zealand’s wild animals.

Based on the award-winning and best-selling ‘Explore and Discover’ children’s series about New Zealand’s natural history, this book is packed full of illustrations and information about our native animals, both common and rare, these also feature the name of the animal in te reo Māori. The book also shows many well-known introduced animals. The book includes land and sea birds, frogs and lizards, many kinds of fish and other marine creatures, insects and invertebrates.

This is an essential and beautiful reference book for all New Zealand kids. Children can pore over the pages on their own or read it with an adult, but with such engaging images and fun facts, this is a reference book we will all wish we’d had as a child.

Format: This is a hard cover book

Language: This book is written in English but contains some names of animals in te reo Māori underneath the English name.
