"We believe in celebrating our children's rich Pacific heritage in any way we can. We do this by creating quality learning resources and experiences that incorporate the languages, patterns and motifs of our Pacific homelands. By surrounding our babies with strong and positive cultural learning interactions, we enable them to carry their 'home' into the future."

Learning through Bathtime

Authors Deborah and Oka Sanerivi. Illustrated by Chad Robertson.

In collaboration with Ma’au Books, this app is designed for families to learn basic Samoan, Tongan and Fijian language through bath time.

It includes the basics of vowel pronunciation, simple sentences for easy learning and child-friendly user interface!

We hope this app will support your family in celebrating Pacific languages in your home – wherever home may be.

The App features unique functions to support engagement and understanding including reading aloud, colouring-in, and simple animation.
