Kia ora I’m Janet and I made this book for my daughter – she loves rhymes but the traditional rhymes were often outdated (and sometimes quite offensive!) so I re-imagined these into modern, fun rhymes to celebrate diversity, inclusivity and the beautiful backyard that is Aotearoa.

This book re-imagines old nursery rhymes with a diverse and inclusive lens that might just make you laugh out loud. Co-created with our tamariki, so every Kiwi kid can find a rhyme relatable to them.

Read in english or te reo Māori (professionally translated and reviewed) and celebrate the magic that Aotearoa has to offer.

The book has proudly been written, professionally translated, illustrated and printed all here in Aotearoa.
