Puanga me Matariki by Sharon Holt
This book is about the star Puanga and the star cluster Matariki, which work together to herald the Māori New Year for different iwi. We are sure it will be a welcome addition to the books available for this year’s special Matariki celebration in June - with the first Matariki public holiday on June 24.

- Singalong CD which turns the book into a beautiful song
