Asiasiga ‘I Le Falemata’aga I Te Papa. Going to Te Papa by Dahlia Malaeulu. Pub Te Papa Press, 2021.

June 3, 2021

It is Samoan language week here in New Zealand and what better way to celebrate it than with the simplest board book aimed at pre school and primary school kids you are learning about reading and Samoan culture and language.

It takes you on a trip to Te Papa and shows off Treasures of Samoa like the Salu, Tuiga, Fala moe, Siapo, Pate and others. 23 thick cardboard pages describe the treasure firstly in Samoan with the English translation underneath. Each treasure is photographed and place in the middle of a pastel coloured background. In the back is a description and smaller image of all the treasures.

It’s a quality publication with lots of reasons to learn language and the value of reading.
