Matariki - Gavin Bishop

When the Matariki cluster rises, each of the nine stars represent the promise of the year ahead. This stunning board book guides our youngest tamariki through the meaning of each star, with simple, evocative words in te reo Māori and English, alongside bold, engaging artwork. Matariki is an accessible introduction to Matariki and basic te reo Māori for tamariki aged 0 to 5 years.

Matariki is yet another vital book for all of Aotearoa from the award-winning Gavin Bishop that shares knowledge on te ao Māori, making it perfect for reading both at home or at kindergarten and school.

Reader review: Emma

My daughter has been learning all about Matariki at her daycare. This book is perfect for us at home so we can continue to learn together.

Matariki has become her favourite bedtime story, reading about the stars and the different meanings behind each one, and chatting about what this time of year means to us.

We love that the book is bilingual – we get to read about the stars in both languages and the artwork is beautiful and fun.

It’s a wonderful book for families wanting to read about Matariki together.
