Published just this year Tu Meke Tui by Malcolm Clarke is set to become a New Zealand classic. It is a truly heart warming story of friendship and courage, and how by using the strength of these characters we can overcome diversity. The plot is told at an exciting fast pace using some great rhythm and rhyme. The story is then supported with some fantastic illustrations by Auckland artist Flox, (who’s stunning artwork graces all our Nurture Kitchen walls) like all her artwork she has used a beautiful colour palette, and her graffiti style is so light and gestural that the birds almost appear to fly off the books pages. This book is now available for all our children at Nurture, but would be a great purchase for your home also.
