Te Wairua o Waitangi
(The Spirit of Waitangi)

$24.99 incl GST

We created this book because so many teachers wanted an easy and inspirational book to use with children during their annual Waitangi focus. This book does that and more! Many teachers have been amazed at how children have easily grasped the concept of honouring the treaty by respecting the Māori culture and protecting our unique natural environment. This is the first book in our series to use photographs, and we’ve had excellent feedback about using more photography in the future.

What others say about Te Wairua o Waitangi:

Jonas and I really connected with this resource and I found it strongly supported the way I describe and explain how we can honour Te Tiriti o Waitangi to our preschool age group. Wetiweti ana!”
