Porirua, New Zealand: Samoan Early Education Development Services Ltd (SEEDS)
Illustrated beautifully using bright, simple illustrations, this book takes the reader through an every-day experience of packing their school bag with Mummy. The use of simple, repetitive language makes this an ideal book for beginner readers and pre-schoolers. The story has a twist at the end, when Mummy does not notice the young boy slipping his favourite toy into his bag as well!
The text is given in both Samoan and English.
A New Zealand curriculum-linked activity for this book can be found here.
