Non-Fiction 8 years and up Waitangi Day

NZ Writer, Photographers and Artists  Philippa Werry  Waitangi Day The New Zealand Story

New Holland, 2015   $25.00pb 64pp ISBN 978 1 8696 6421 3

Themes: New Zealand History/ Treaty of Waitangi, 1840

Waitangi Day, the Treaty of Waitangi - what it is and why it matters is the theme of this
recent book put together in the same format of many photos and images and easily accessed material as found in ANZAC Day the New Zealand Story.  

The important facts surrounding the Treaty between its ‘signing’ in 1840 and the present day are broken down into bite sized pieces and are supported by a detailed guide to the places to see and explore when visiting Waitangi. There is a full index. It will be interesting to see what ‘Day’ Pippa Werry turns her considerable talents to next! Although the book is aimed at younger readers (see below) it will also be useful for much older students (and adults) wanting a quick brush up.
