Birdsong / He Korihi is a charming bilingual, bicultural 1 to 10 counting book for 0-10 year olds.
It is beautifully illustrated with a mix of familiar native and introduced birds – just as Aotearoa has a mix of indigenous and immigrant peoples. The rhyming couplets in Māori and English introduce a range of interesting words and bird behaviours for readers and teachers.
