PANUI
Scoop and Scribe search for the seven stars of Matariki by Tommy Kapai Wilson
I am just reading this book - it is a fiction book following 2 kids on a quest through NZ to find the 7 stars of Matariki. I especially like the part that has the kids talking to the statue in Katikati that is the man reading the newspaper. I think our kids will connect with it. Probably more suited to year 4- 6 but I will use it as a shared book with year 2's. http://www.nieonline.co.nz/page.cfm?ID=86
