Nana’s new porch – Te mahau hou o Kui – written by Marie Munro, nā Piripi Walker i whakamāori, illustrated by Rachel Doragh

Nana’s back porch is draughty and old, it’s dangerous, rickety, slippery and cold.

This fully bilingual book incorporates the characters from Nana’s Shed and Bella’s Fringe in a story that revels in the fertile imaginations of Kiwi kids, especially those who enjoy building things, teamwork, creativity and working with tools.

The text has been translated by Piripi Walker, NZSTI, who has “kept the words simple and clear so the rhythm is right and each sentence will stand up well when delivered aloud”.

Format: This book is a Paper back.

Language: This book is written using both English and te reo Māori text (Bilingual).
