Lei Loves / Petelo Peeks – 2 stories in a flip format (that’s 2 books in 1).

Petelo Peeks – when Petelo looks out the window, he sees lots of different vehicles, from car to train, and then the best of all, a plane to take the family on holiday.

Lei Loves – introduces festive greetings from Mother’s Day to Happy New Year and culminates in wishing Leia ‘Happy Birthday’.

Lei Loves and Petelo Peeks book review for early childhood education and care

Each story ends with a Vocabulary and Pronunciation Sheet drawn from the story.

Samoan language is introduced within English language text in a way that makes the meaning clear to the reader of either language. 

Recommended for 2 to 7-year-olds by early childhood teachers.

“Celebrations important to children are introduced, in a Samoan cultural way. I can see the story could lend itself to each child then creating their own family story with our help.”

“The pictures are vibrant – outstanding!”

“I can see girls would pick it up. I can see boys would pick it up. I love the concept of 2 books in one for boys and girls.”
