Little Kiwi’s Matariki

, , , , ,

The little Kiwi is fast asleep in her burrow. A beam of moonlight shines right down into her burrow.

She wakes, and realises it is time. Hurrying out into the night, she wakes each of her friends from their mid-winter slumber.

‘Kia tere! Hurry!’ she urges them.

This gentle tale about celebrating Matariki, the Māori New Year, also includes an explanation of Matariki – it’s origins, traditions and how it is celebrated today. The constellation is also shown, with the Māori names for each star. The text contains some simple words in Te Reo Māori alongside the English equivalent.
