To celebrate Matariki we made a korowai. All of our toddlers made a collage feather and the teachers made one too, then we put them all together to make our cloak. This korowai is representative of all the children in our room. It was the central part of our wall display on Matariki this year.
This book contains four Maori myths. They're exciting and scary but each story is nicely resolved. Gavin allows the essence of the original myths to remain while also re-telling them for a new generation of children.
