Publisher Description

Help your tamariki to korero Maori with this brilliant first words book by Stacey Morrison, gorgeously illustrated by Ali Teo and John O'Reilly.

My First Words in Maori equips your whanau with the first words you need to speak te reo at home together.

She lives in Auckland with her husband Scotty and their three children, who are proud to speak Maori as their first language.

Review

"The book is user-friendly with both Maori and English nouns beside each illustration. Another nice touch is that on each spread are common phrases to be used with tamariki, such as on the bedroom page are the phrases, 'Kei te tiwekaweka tenei ruma! This room is messy!' and 'Me tuku i nga tautapu takaro ki hea? Where should the toys go?' as well as phrases that can use other kupu from the theme, such as on the emotions page the phrases are 'Kei te pehea koe? How are you?' and 'Ka nui taku harikoa. I'm so happy' Perfect resource for all early learning services, homes and all ages." --Swings and Roundabouts
