Sweeeet I just realised there is a story on one of the sites I linked in resources that has text in both Māori and English and with audio!
Tino pai kē!
It’s a great story too, called “The Unseen” it’s a bit scary about boys camping out in the woods. I love the audio it has sound effects and everything ❤ The site says the stories were all either written or retold by Wiremu Grace. Ka mau kē te wehi! Good stuff!
So of course I made it into a parallel text 🙂

Bilingual recipes, yay! The theme of Maori language week is food, I think it was a good choice 😀 I am planning on trying these ones, or at least a version of them. (I don’t eat dairy so I will replace the Parmesan with something else yum)
