Aotearoa New Zealand by Christine Dale
At birth, a baby’s eyesight and colour perception is still developing. Experts agree that babies can see black, white and shades of grey to begin with. This is why babies are drawn to books with strong black and white pictures.
Aotearoa New Zealand is a new board book that celebrates the shapes of New Zealand’s fauna for our littlest readers. Bold, bright artworks with high contrast make it easy for baby to focus. Kōwhaiwhai borders add to the depth and contrast.
Each animal pictured in the book is accompanied by their name in both te reo Māori and English. Tohutō are also used correctly, although regional dialect differences aren’t included for some animals. This isn’t a downfall though, leading to an interesting discussion with older toddlers.
