Mahi Tahi
(Work Together)

$24.99 incl GST

The children in this book dress up and work together to put on a show – culminating in a triumphant “hōmai kia rima!” or “high five!” The vocabulary in this book is a little more advanced than that of the other books in the series, but teachers who take it one phrase at a time have found it an excellent resource for vocabulary and sentence structure growth. The dancy rock and roll tune also makes this an excellent song for clean up time – or for letting loose when it’s time to boogy!

What others say about Mahi Tahi:

I love Mahi Tahi for its catchy tune. The teamwork theme made it a perfect book and song for a team building exercise with children’s librarians recently. Everyone happily joined in with the actions of the crocodiles, monkeys and elephants.
