Most teachers and children can count a few numbers in te reo Māori. But how many can use those numbers in sentences? This Christmas countdown book includes easy sentence structures that are useful all year round. And it’s a great way to practise counting in te reo as well! The illustrations feature a family getting ready for Christmas at the beach – a nice Kiwi touch that many children can relate to.

What others say about E hia ngā moe?:

This is one of my daughter's favourite pukapuka. She loves the interactive aspect, counting the new items on each page aloud. She also enjoyed discovering that the mumutawa (ladybug) was somewhere to be found on each page.
