Taku Mōkai
(My Pet)

$24.99 incl GST

Children and pets go well together – even when you are photographing them – and this book proves it! The photographs of five children with their pets appeal to other children who love looking after their pets. The children introduce their pet and explain how they care for it. On the last page, a boy in a wheelchair introduces his pet dog and explains how it cares for him too.

What others say about Taku Mōkai:

These are great books for introducing te reo in our home schooling lessons. Our budget prevents me from buying them all at once, so we were thrilled that our library agreed that the books are great and bought them for us to borrow. Elijah knows Cameron, one of the children in this book. He chased the librarians around in his wheelchair, showing them my friend Cameron!
