Purchased on Mighty Ape

Grew up reading this book & when I saw it had to have it for my kids.


Absorbing New Zealand tale of the Kuia (a grandmother) and the spider. Ideal for reading aloud. Age 5 to 8.

Accurately illustrates Maori cultural practices such as weaving, gathering food, making music - and clearly portrays the close-knit family connection between a kuia and her grandchildren.
