A Story Book of 10 Stories in Te Reo Māori to soothe and relax you and your child written by Pania Papa.

The term 'Pito Mata' is taken from the proverb "Iti noa, he pito mata", which refers to a small uncooked portion of kūmara that was replanted to produce many more kūmara.  From this proverb, the term 'pito mata' is now used in some contexts to express the notion of 'potential'.  Pito Mata acknowledges the potential within 0-5 year olds, with a hope that that potential can be nutured, developed and allowed to be expressed freely.
