Each book in this gorgeous series offers very young readers (03 year olds) an immersive experience of New Zealand art and a fun, educational experience, all in one. Beautiful and interesting paintings, sculptures, photographs and objects from Te Papas collections take centre stage in My New Zealand ABC Book, My New Zealand 123 Book and My New Zealand Colours Book, while fun and engaging text in te reo Maori and English invites children to inspect each artwork closely for intriguing details. The books are themed around letters, numbers and colours, allowing parents and teachers to read the books with children in a myriad of different ways focusing on the artworks, practising counting, letters or colour recognition, or simply enjoying the quirky combinations of language and image. Featuring beloved favourites and seldom-seen treasures, these selections allow toddlers and families to explore the national art collection at home. These beautifully-designed books may be bought for the very small, but theyll be treasured by the whole family for many years.
