New Christmas book in Te Reo Maori
The latest book in Sharon Holt's popular Te Reo Singalong series is available next week. 'E hia nga moe?' is a Christmas countdown book and CD, which asks the age-old question 'how many sleeps until Santa comes?'
The Christmas book is the fifth in the series and Sharon says it's a great way for parents and teachers to extend their use of counting in te reo. "With this new book, I'm showing people how to ask and answer questions about 'how many?' which will finally give adults and children something to do other than count from 1 to 10 in te reo!" she says.
Sharon has three more books planned for her Te Reo Singalong series next year, including one about Matariki. In the meantime, she is looking forward to the Maori Language Awards ceremony on November 15. Her books made the finals of the awards last year and, this year, she is a finalist in two categories – with her books and her te reo pronunciation workshops.
