Tatiana has become the first person ro read to Roo in te reo Maori!   Roo was incredibly impressed with Tatiana’s fluency in two languages, and appreciated her translations into English to help him understand the story.  Tatiana selected Te Mihini Iti Kowhai as her story – and Roo thought the dog in the story was very cool as well.

Thanks Tatiana, you are awesome!tatianaJPG

 Nane dropped in to read a story to Roo as well – encouraged by her younger sister, Josey.

While Nane was reading, her and Josey’s Dad came in and got the girls memberships to the library – awesome Dad!

Thanks for reading to Roo, Nane!

Amos is an excellent reader, and has taken up the challenge of introducing the genre of Graphic Novels to Roo.  Amos reads the text so well, that Roo can fully understand the story, and he liked this one!amos2JPG
