Waitangi Day reading

The house that Jack built book, Gavin Bishop, picture book for kids, nursery rhyme

This book by Gavin Bishop relates beautifully to Waitangi Day, telling the story of how New Zealand was colonised. NZ Book of the Year in 2002, and reissued by Gecko Press in 2012 in both English and Te Reo editions (the English hardback has the original storyboards on the inside jacket) I believe this book is one of the most important in New Zealand’s book history. I learned recently that it is used in schools in the UK to view the effect of British colonisation from the other side! (Julia)
