Kia ora anō tamariki mā

Ki a koutou ngā kaituhituhi kei te mihi, kei te mihi.

Ko tēnei te rā whakamutunga o Māwhai Tuhituhi. Me pēhea te whakakapi i te pakiwaitara nei?

He whakataetae te Māwhai Tuhituhi. Kua oti kē ngā whiti e whā, kei a koe te ariā o te whiti tuarima. Āpiti atu tō tuhituhi ki te pakiwaitara ia rā, mō ngā rā 21-25 o Hūrae.

Mēnā ka hiahia koe ki te uru ki te whakataetae haere ki te whārangi o te māwhai tuhituhi, pāngia te pikitia “māwhai tuhi” ki runga rā, āpiti tō tuhi ki te wahanga tuhi ki raro nei rānei.

Ka whiriwhirihia kotahi te whiti ia rā hei wini i te taonga o te rā, ki te wikitoria i te taonga nunui pea, ā, ki te hono ki te pakiwaitara mo te whiti o te rā.

Karawhiua!!! Tukua mai tāu tuhituhi, māu te whiti tuarima pea?

Ānei te pakiwaitara ……

Kua horoia ngā rīhi, ka paoho mai te pouaka whakaata, “I tēnei wā ka huri ki ngā matapae huarere mō āpōpō, tērā te whakatūpato a Te Ratonga Tirorangi, he āwhā, he hau āwhiwhio …” Kātahi ka weto te pouaka whakaata! Ka weto ngā raiti o te whare! Kua pō uriuri.

Māmā! Māmā! Kua pakaru te pouaka whakaata, kua pakaru ngā rama katoa! Ka aha tātou nāianei? Ka tīmata taku hōtaka ākuanei. Aue!! Hei aha te pouaka whakaata e tama, tiki mai ngā kānara!!

Kei te hēti te pouaka o ngā rawa whai oranga ohotata ne māma? Ka haere au ki waho ki te tiki. Kia tūpato kei whara koe te ki o te māmā. Ka haere te tama ki waho engari kāore te hēti i reira. Ka ohorere te tama ki te tirohanga ki waho, kāore he hēti, kāore he mara, kāore he tiriti, engari he ngahere kei te karapoti kē i te whare nei. Ka hāmama te waha o te tama i te kitenga atu i te ngahere.

Ka oma ki waho tōna tuakana,”Aue” tāna kī, ka putē ngā karu o Kahu. Me haere tāua ki te hōpara i tēnei ngahere hou. Ka whawhai rāua mēnā me haere ki te ngahere. I hinga a Kahu. Hoake tāua, kātahi ka oma rāua ki roto i te ngahere me te pōuriuri ki muri.

…….ka aha ināianei?

The Official Angry Birds Star Wars Joke Book.

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away. The bird rebels and the pork federation joined forces to find the funniest, craziest, zaniest jokes in the Star Ways history. Well did they complete their mission? “Hee Hee! Mwa Ha Ha Ha! Bleep Bleep!” Hmmm, I guess the words speak for themselves. Hands down, this is the funniest joke book voted by bird rebels,  pork federation and of course a local children’s librarian in the history of joke books, Angry Birds and Star Wars.  Most of the jokes in this book are Angry Birds Star Wars related. There are the odd jokes enclosed in this book that might be enjoyed by those with a sick and warped sense of humor. And believe it or not, there is the odd librarian joke, hmmm perhaps you might want to try it out on your local librarian, hee hee. Hope you enjoy this book… as much as I did.

But wait, there’s more!

Are we one the verge of the zombie apocalypse? Not yet. But it could happen… right? So best to be prepared. That’s where this book comes in. This book had all the entertainment, puzzles, games and quizzes to do to pass the time in the probably unlikely event of having to barricade yourself inside your own home to protect your precious brain parts from being gobbled up during a terrifying invasion of shuffling, plant-hating and frankly inconvienient zombies… and also perhaps another book to keep you entertained in the very likely event of having to barricade yourself indoors to protect your precious body from the terrifying cold and wet weather.

Judith Kerr’s Creatures.

Here is a children’s art book and a biography all rolled into one which celebrates children’s author and illustrator, Judith Kerr’s life and work. As a child, I simply adored Judith Kerr’s picture books like the Mog series and The Tiger who came to tea. But after reading this book, I have fallen in love with Judith Kerr’s picture books all over again. This is another WOW factor book that is well deserving of a 5 star rating!

INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT JUDITH KERR:

- She was born in Berlin.

- Her family fled to Switzerland when Hitler seized power.

Johnsonville Library enjoyed an action packed renaissance inspired school holiday activity today.

We tried our hand at painting like Michelangelo, crawling under the tables to create our masterpieces underneath.  We made wonderful stain glass windows and everyone had a hand in making a beautiful fresco painting along the wall.

Here is a taste of our masterpieces in the making.
