Brought to you by
A hearty welcome to our new followers of The Puffin’s Little Book Club!
Puffin is the home of some of the very best stories for young readers (and readers who are young at heart!). Here you’ll discover magical adventures and fascinating characters, built to spark a lifelong
love of reading in your little one.
Read on and remember, there’s always time for stories.
A beautiful story about how a new baby needs time to hatch and grow, for all young brothers- and sisters-in-waiting.
Will the egg EVER hatch? This is a story for all children eagerly awaiting a new sibling.
‘When Baby wakes up,
will she hop and jump?’
‘Not yet, Kiwi Iti,
these things take time.’
Helen Taylor’s gentle text and exquisitely detailed illustrations show that growing a family takes patience and love, but is oh-so-worth the wait.
Also available in a te reo Maori edition, Pipi Kiwi.
