Te Whare Onetree House book reviews

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
