Kete reviews Kaewa the Kororā


Dionne Christian and Zoe Gadd round up new New Zealand children’s books for Kete:

‘At the National Aquarium of New Zealand in Napier, the rehabilitation centre cares for abandoned chicks and sick and injured kororā - little blue penguins. Its permanent residents are getting a moment in the spotlight in this pleasing story by educator and marine scientist Rachel Haydon who successfully shows the work that goes on at the centre as well as how each penguin has its own distinct personality. Pippa Keel’s illustrations give a penguins’-eye-view of daily life at the centre and are bound to charm young readers keen to know more about one of our cutest birds.’
