Here's a fun activity from Gavin Bishop's latest picture book, Wildlife of Aotearoa. A spectacularly illustrated picture book exploring New Zealand’s unique landscapes and its incredible wildlife!
Long before waka touched Aotearoa’s shores, the land of the long white cloud was home to an array of creatures uniquely adapted to its environments and protected by its isolation. Take our quiz and see how much you know about Aotearoa's Wildlife.
We've put together this activity pack so you can take a sneak peek and try out a couple of the activities. Use your hunting skills in Wordfind Warrior, crack the Land Loss Labyrinth code and get creative thinking about what your Atua would be as a supernatural being!
Be in to win the full set of Gavin Bishop's Aotearoa books!
