Reeds and Reed Publishing

Today Brooke M noticed that the reeds on the first page are just like the ones she has seen around Kaipara Flats.  They look like hot dogs on a stick.
I noticed that the same reeds are on the logo for Reed, the company that published this book.
Today we have shared the page Brooke was talking about and Ms Donnell taught us the maori word for reed which is raupo.
Brooke said the reeds 'look like a sausage on a stick.' This is a helpful comparison because we know just what that looks like.

  1. That's a great connection you've made Brooke! I can imagine in my mind just want a reed looks like with that description, well done!
