This picture book tells the story of colonisation in Aotearoa for our tamariki and our rangatahi. They can look at and see and feel–what happened here, what was the impact, what changed in Aotearoa from page one to the end of the book? This book is a huge asset as a launch pad for deeper learning for our students.
