Hachette NZ is thrilled to announce the My First Board Book series by Donovan Bixley, which is the perfect bilingual introduction to books for Kiwi kids.
The project came about after Hachette NZ observed a lack of books for very young readers that featured both English and Te Reo.
“We saw a gap in the market for beautifully designed, accessible books in Te Reo for young children and were thrilled that Donovan Bixley was also keen to work on these with us,” says Melanee Winder, Hachette NZ Sales and Marketing Director.
“It’s great that tamariki can learn their first words in English and Te Reo with characters they have met from some of my other books," says Donovan of his involvement.
There are plans to grow the series with two new books scheduled for next year looking at shapes and machines.
