Kia Ora

$24.99 incl GST

The boy in this story goes around asking his family members how they are, and gets a wide variety of responses. Of course, each person is wrapped up in their own activities, so the boy moves on to the next one. At last, his friend scoots past and comes in to ask the boy how he is. At last, he can say he is “tino pai!” This book helps teachers and children to ask and answer the simplest of greetings in a fun and natural way.

What others say about Kia Ora:

We love your new book Kia Ora. We are familiar with some of the words and the children have already begun to join in with the CD. They are responding by being totally focussed and interested. Thanks again Sharon, for your input into our te reo Māori programme.
