Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
A delightful multicultural story, available in English and Maori language editions. Many years ago, a Maori couple built a little hall where people could gather. It was warm and welcoming, with walls that folded all the way round like wooden arms. Through the years, the hall houses a church, a shoemaker, a doctor, a dressmaker, a dance studio and finally becomes a meeting place for people who had travelled from countries far away.
Picture story book for children.
Also published in Māori as: Poupou tauawhi.
cultural differences -- city growth -- cultural differences -- Picture story book for children. -Also available in Maori.
Each time its people move away, the little hall sits empty. Will its walls ever again ring with laughter, music, stories and song? Then, one day, a little boy steps inside the hall- and feels the welcome of its wooden arms. Suggested level: primary.
