My boy has ant in his pants and is a bit of a night owl so I was happy to see the colourful illustration of these board books grab his attention immediately ... Pointing at the words and using the cute pictures to read them he was happily engaged and I was quietly pleased with its educational undertow! With sounds at the back of the book you’ll both be pros in pronunciation in no time. Older siblings can get involved in the fun too, learning a few more words in Maori.
