Auckland Libraries has just celebrated the publication of its first te reo Māori children’s book: Māma, e hiakai ana mātou - Mum, we’re hungry. The book has also been translated into Samoan as Tinā, ua mātou fia'a'ai! This is a universal story that has been written with aroha and alofa. Everyone will relate to its warmth and wit.
Alison is joined in the studio by two wonderful wāhine: Teri Ta’ala (author) and Veronica Ligaliga (translator) to talk through the process of writing and launching this book.
