"E kāingākau ana a Te Rau ki ngā reo me ngā tangi katoa o te taiao. Tae mai ana a Matua Te Rangi, ka ako i a Te Rau ki te whakatangi puoro. Me he manu tīoriori tōna rite"--Publisher's website.
After Te Rau's father dies, his father's younger brother Te Rangi arrives to help Te Rau and his pregnant mother shift house. Te Rau wants to do something to help his grieving mother, so his uncle teaches him to play his father's taonga puoru (traditional Māori musical instruments), and they compose a special song to comfort his mother. Resource to support language learning by 7-10 year old children, as part of Te Marautanga o Aotearoa.
