- Black and white baby book: Taurite Maori
Tēnā tātou e te hāpori nei! Tēnei e mihi kau atu ki a koutou.
Kia ora everyone! I just wanted to take a minute to introduce Tautitotito, a business I started in 2017. We are a business that creates resources for Māori whānau to normalise Te Ao Māori in the home, through storytelling and storytelling tools.
We believe that what we surround our babies with matters, and we want all our babies to be surrounded by tools, toys, images, resources, you name it, that promote māori ways of being, thinking, knowing, and living!
Our first product is this little Taurite pukapuka here, a black and white image book for pēpi 0-9 months. Each of the images is connected to a traditional pan māori pūrākau. Black and white image books are proven to have cognitive benefits to developing minds, and help babies to use their eyes in tandem, to differentiate between shades, and help them use visual queues to learn.
