WhakarongoWhakarongo ki o Tupuna. Listen to your Ancestors by Darryn Joseph, illus. Munro Te Whata. Pub. Oratia, 2019.

a heart felt picture book that follows the life of a teacher as she tells her students to basically be cool. Respect your ancestors and your environment and follow their examples.

There are various settings of each adventure from the classroom to the beach to the rest home to the funeral and back to one of the new generation.

Each setting is beautifully illustrated in rich colours with text being in both Maori and English. An excellent tool for teaching and reading in te Reo.

A uniquely New Zealand picture book for everybody.
