This beautiful boardbook for every New Zealand baby introduces ideas of me and my whanau within the form of a simple mihi or pepeha. A simple book to look at and share with babies, it can also be used as an introduction to a child's pepeha. Moves from waka, mountain, iwi, mama and papa to the reading baby. Ko toku ao tenei, this is my world.
