Matariki is just around the corner. If you want to find out more about it and how we New Zealanders celebrate our Maori New Year, Matariki by Melanie Drewery and Bruce Potter is a very good picture book to read. It has very lovely illustrations and also explains what Matariki is and what people do to celebrate it in a very simple way. It’s a delight to read so check it out!
Also The Seven Stars of Matariki by Toni Rolleston-Cummins tells another legend about how the star cluster came into being. It’s very entertaining to read.
