Ngā Waka Aituā (Emergency Vehicles)
NZ$ 24.99 incl GST
This book teaches the Māori words for emergency vehicles — and includes some sirens! The illustrations reflect how those emergency vehicles look in a New Zealand setting, and give plenty of opportunities for children to make predictions about what might happen next. The book will help you to learn how to talk about emergency vehicles and sirens in te reo. It will also give you the opportunity to talk about what to do in an emergency.
