Praise for He wa moe, Kiwi Pakupaku

He Wa Moe, Kiwi Pakupaku at its core is a simple book; however, when you look closely it shows the beauty of te wao nui a Tane. Me penei pea te korero, he pukapuka tenei i whakaatu ana i te ataahua, i te rerehua o nga tamariki o te wao nui a Tane...Na reira, he pukapuka tenei ma nga tamariki katoa o Aotearoa nei, na te mea he pukapuka ataahua, he pukapuka e whakaputa ana i nga kare-a-roto harikoa. This is one of the many books that should be read by all children in Aotearoa, New Zealand, not only because it is a beautiful book, but also because it gives off the feelings of happiness and nostalgia that we long for.
