My Matariki Stories (Aku Paki Matariki)


An attractive kete gift bag of three stories to celebrate Matariki and explore the wonders and traditions of Maori New Year.

Flit the Fantail & the Matariki Map: Join Flit and his friends, Keri the kiwi and wise old Ruru, as they explore the night skies to work out how to capture a sparkling star.

The Seven Kites of Matariki: Seven sisters make kites to celebrate the Maori new year. But when they take the finished kites to fly them, the east wind whips them all away into the sky … where they now appear as the stars of Matariki.

The Stolen Stars of Matariki: Sam and Te Rerehua are visiting their Grandma and Poua at Birdling’s Flat. One night, Grandma notices something mysterious. Someone has stolen some stars from the sky. And then the patupaiarehe come out to play on the beach ... are those stars they’re playing with?
