New Zealand is full of colours. Let's go exploring and see what we can find, in English and Maori.

From the rich red of the pohutukawa to the cool blue of the little blue penguin, pictures from vibrant Aotearoa are the perfect introduction to colours for Kiwi babies. This simple and eye-catching book, with essential words in English and Maori, will delight our littlest learners.


A beautifully illustrated introduction to colours in English and Maori, this board book is perfect for small hands. With vivid colours and iconic Kiwi images, older babies will love the rich red tones of the pohutukawa and the cool blue of the little blue penguin.

Board books are perfect for babies. They can pull, throw and dribble on them and they survive to be read another day.These two are bright and colourful and introduce counting from 1 to 10 with the help of our New Zealand birds, and colours with help from all sorts of Kiwiana. Both are in English and Maori. These would make a fantastic gift for a new mum.
