‘New Zealand a History in Pictures’ is a must have book for teachers. This book has pictures by Peter Gossage who is a famous author and artist of children’s books. The book is 30 pages long and starts from the beginning of the making of the New Zealand islands through the eruptions of volcanoes. It follows on with the arrival of people to New Zealand including Maori and other cultures.
The book has short simple text and of course great pictures. The book was published in 1997 so takes us to the time the sky tower was built.
This book is a good reference for teachers as you can do some lesson planning from any of the pages within it. it covers topics like the treaty of Waitangi and Anzac Day. It has information about early Maori life in New Zealand and information about the conflicts that happened too.
I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars.
As it is an old book it is now out of print but try your local library for a copy. If any subscribed person is interested in buying this book I have a secondhand copy available for $10 plus postage. Leave a message in comments and I will get back to you.
