Kids’ Club Review by Molly: Tu Meke Tūī! : koni atu ke nga ahua o te manu rerere

Tu Meke Tūī! : koni atu ke nga ahua o te manu rerereTu Meke Tūī! : koni atu ke nga ahua o te manu rerere, ko Malcolm Clarke te kaituhituhi ; ko Flox te kaiwhakaahua te ringatoi whakairoiro

A beautifully illustrated picture book about friendship. A tui and a takahe meet. Despite having lots of differences they find a way to become friends. This is a lovely story and makes you feel good inside. The illustrations are truly amazing. All children would enjoy reading and looking at this book.

Kids’ Club Review by Molly: The clay woman

The clay womanThe clay woman, woven and illustrated by Xoë Hall

The Clay Woman is about Hineahuane, who was sculptured from clay by Tane Mahuta. I think this is a fabulous book as it is about a Maori legend. The illustrations are also stunning.

Tu Meke Tūī! : there's more to being a bird than flyingTu Meke Tūī! : there’s more to being a bird than flying, Malcolm Clarke ; illustrated by Flox

This is beautiful book is about a Tui called Teri who sets off flying. He sees a Takahe who want to know if Teri can fly with her. This story is lovely as it is about friends. I really enjoyed it and think little children will enjoy it too as it is a picture book.
