Kia KahaKia Kaha. Together standing strong by June Pitman-Hayes & Minky Stapleton. Maori lyrics by Ngaere Roberts. Pub. Scholastic, 2020.

Kia Kaha means be brave , stand strong and this multi cultural picture book with sound track on a CD displays this from a child’s point of view.

Children are less inhibited when it comes to race relations and dealing with disabilities. A hurt knee because of a fall is just as painful whether you are brown, black, muslim or oriental. Kis kaha is what we say when someone needs a helping hand.

The musical CD is easy to sing along to and the story is told in both Maori and English.

Thew illustrations are positive, simple and appealing. A great picture book for getting along together.
