Te Whare is an educational picture book for infants and toddlers. It is also suitable to use as an early reader for children starting school.
The story follows an infant crawling through a home and notes the household objects discovered.
Written in te reo, Te Whare introduces vocabulary for furnishings within a home such as chair, table and cupboard.
This book has eye-catching high contrast illustrations. The rhythm of the text it a page-turner for adults and children alike.
It is a great little book for a child to look through and enjoy on their own. But equally, it is suitable for teachers and kaiako to select for story reading session with one or a small group of children.
The final two pages provide a glossary of the te reo/English names of objects and a corresponding picture for each.
Te Whare is written by Ngaere Roberts and illustrated by Christine Dale
