    1. Kete Books, Emma Espiner

      Although these books are designed to stand alone, having the companion set in te reo Māori and English speaks to our bicultural foundations and they work well together. The books are filled with typically beautiful illustrations by Bishop, and it reminded me of my relationship with my koro; there were few words between us but plenty of unspoken love and tenderness.
