He rite a Miti ki a Papa




Publication Date:

A funny and warm father/son story in te reo Maori in which an irresistible lion cub proudly tries to be just like Papa.

Miti can do everything Papa does: Papa combs his hair. So does Miti. Papa scratches his arm. So does Miti. Papa sings very, very loud. So does Miti.

But when Miti throws all the toys in the air and they come down PAKU! on Papa's head ... Papa yells! Aue! So does Miti! Papa takes a break and has a think. Then comes rushing back for a big hug—Papa is very, very happy, and so is Miti!

Boundary-pushing Miti has a mischievous grin that instantly wins us over, and his tolerant father incidentally provides a great model for parenting.

With laugh out loud facial expressions from these mischievous lions, this board book is a great discussion tool for talking about, and managing, emotions. The simple language allows reader and child to play ‘Simon says’ in te reo Maori along with the characters.

This small and sturdy board book is just right for toddlers’ and preschoolers’ hands making it ideal to read alongside a child. A perfect gift for Father’s Day or for Dads any time of the year.

He rite a Miti ki a Papa is the third book in this pithy board book series, designed to be read as standalone stories that introduce developmental milestones with humour, mischief and gentle guidance. Series includes:
