SPCA’s latest two series of storybooks for learners have been adapted and translated into te reo Māori, and provided free to every Māori medium education setting across Aotearoa. Along with accompanying resources, these books are enabling even more tamariki to learn about important animal welfare lessons.

SPCA feels strongly about ensuring the resources they create for tamariki and schools are as widely accessible as possible. That is why the English versions of all four series of these books have been provided free-of-charge to primary and intermediate schools nationwide, and now all four te reo Māori editions have been gifted!

SPCA know that tamariki are the animal guardians of tomorrow, and working with them is a vital step in achieving their long-term vision of preventing animal cruelty in New Zealand.

SPCA’s learn-to-read storybooks are a crucial part of this process. Aligned to the New Zealand Curriculum, they can easily be incorporated into the classroom. Through them, teachers are able to use engaging, real-world animal stories to not only help young learners improve their reading skills, but to take on key lessons about care and responsibility when it comes to all animals.

While these new books and resources have now landed in all Māori medium education settings in the country, it is important to SPCA to make them available for whoever may enjoy them. All te reo readers are now available to purchase online here.

If you are a teacher or learner at a primary or intermediate school in Aotearoa, have a look for these storybooks in your resource room!

SPCA would like to thank all their incredible supporters who help make this exciting education work possible, including Sunshine Books, Huia Publishers and their supporters who have provided funding specifically for SPCA’s Education Programme.
