Where’s Kiwi Celebrating? Illus.Myles Lawford

where's kiwiWhere’s Kiwi Celebrating?Illus.Myles Lawford. Pub.Scholastic, 2019.

Getting children into looking at and reading books can be tough going but this publication similar to the Where’s Wally series, has got some of the answers.

Take some public holidays like Chinese New Year, Matariki, Christmas and Easter and throw in some cultural celebrations like the Festival of Light, a Pasifika party and Earth Day, then hide Kiwi and his mates-Sporty Sheep(my favourite), Gumboot Guy, Tricky Tuatara and others, in the illustrations and you have hours of enjoyment inside a book.

The illustrations cover double pages and I have to say the characters are very hard to find. The boxed written text does give a clue but it is still difficult. nonetheless it is a bright and lively publication and would make a very good Christmas present for younger readers and future readers.
