A book with beautiful pictures and descriptive language. A great way to revisit Summer or to use as a model for Term 1 holiday writing. This book uses the senses to describe summer in a way that paints vivid pictures in your mind. The book has text in both English and Te Reo Māori allowing the reader to explore both languages.
