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.

The book really ’spoke’ to me. It is so meaningful for all New Zealanders and aimed so well at the level of our littlies.
