Putangitangi Walks product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsCheeky Putangitangi the paradise shelduck is looking for her friend. What will she do when she finds him? A fun rhyming story about two playful little ducks - and a frog!

This is a lovely story about the simple pleasures of life. The cute and colourful illustrations by the author include a little frog that children will enjoy pointing out on each page spread.

The short sentences and rhyming text will make this a favourite book for pre-schoolers and beginner readers.

My young son loves birds and has had a love for ducks from a very young age wanting to go to the local reserve area to feed the ducks as often as possible. I personally love New Zealand children's books and when they are off a topic relating to New Zealand nature or wildlife I am always keen to add them to the home collection as I feel it important for my children to be aware of the wildlife of our own country. I immediately was drawn to Putangitangi walks as the cheeky duck looked like a great character.

The storyline is very simple with a few short words per page describing what Putangitangi was getting up to. The cheeky duck going about simple activities by himself before finding his friend and repeating the activities together. A very simple idea that young children will enjoy beautifully illustrated with simple pictures that show the ducks in their natural NZ habitat. I love the friendly faces of Putangitangi and his friend.

Included in the book is some information about paradise shelduck in New Zealand to add a little bit extra to the story and provide some information about the ducks. I also enjoyed the addition of information regarding why in Maori language Putangitangi remains the same even when there are two ducks as there are no S's in Maori language. I felt it quite cool that this was mentioned as I would probably not have noticed otherwise.
