Description

Details

This is an illustrated story for children aimed at children aged 5-9. The godwits are an iconic bird species with a long bill that migrate each year from New Zealand/Aotearoa through East Asia and the Pacific to the Alaskan Arctic regions. A girl and her grandmother are on a beach watching the godwits feeding and the story of the godwit’s epic migration is charmingly told, touching on waves of human migration on the way – of the Maori to Aotearoa as well as the grandmother’s own (Baba Didi is a migrant from Croatia).

The book has a foreword by Helen Clark, the former NZ prime minister who is now head of the UN Development Programme.
