Out in the Moana product reviews

Proud to promote NZ products"Out in the moana,
underneath the sparkling sun,
lived a mother sea lion
and her little pup one."

This is a catchy and playful retelling of the much-loved traditional story, Over in the Meadow. Like the original, it traces the story of the various babies who live in our oceans as they learn their survival skills from a loving parent.

The text is written by Yvonne Morrison. The vibrant illustrations are by Jenny Cooper.

Out in the Moana is a delightful counting, under-the-sea adventure about a number of marine animals. It features beautiful illustrations by illustrator Jenny Cooper that are both cute and humourous. The book is a traditional counting rhyme that showcases New Zealand ocean-dwelling species such as sea horses, moray eels, Maui dolphins, and little blue penguins.

The book starts off with a sea lion and her cub - both featuring adorable puppy dog eyes. There is a Maui dolphin with two babies, three little blue penguins right up to ten octopuses. There aren't lots of words but the stunning illustrations enhance the story perfectly. I particularly liked the double spread at the back of the book where each creature has a box of information about their birth and their Maori name. Although I thought this may be a bit young for my 11-year old daughter, she read through it and laughed at some of the pictures. She also found the back information interesting and I caught her on more than one occasion trying to pronounce the Te Reo translations.

This is a classy book that would make the perfect gift for younger children that are keen to learn about the sea life around New Zealand and count all the animals.

Product reviews for listing 7603: Putangitangi Walks
Author: Stephanie Thatcher

Product image for Putangitangi WalksCheeky Putangitangi the paradise shelduck is looking for her friend. What will she do when she finds him? A fun rhyming story about two playful little ducks - and a frog!

This is a lovely story about the simple pleasures of life. The cute and colourful illustrations by the author include a little frog that children will enjoy pointing out on each page spread.

The short sentences and rhyming text will make this a favourite book for pre-schoolers and beginner readers.
