Description

Arapū Toi combines short, easy to understand, poems for all ages with artwork that epitomises the idea that "a picture is worth a thousand words".


Gentle rhythmic te reo Māori, with kupu that emphasise ideas of wellness, is used to describe the sights, sounds and feelings of everyday life — like a zip seizing up on a coat — alongside more poetic images such as the darkness or the night or a whale singing in the depths of the ocean.
