it was amazing

This a a book I read long ago and remember how much I enjoyed it. It is the story of a teacher and her principal husband who were sent to teach the Maori children of New Zealand and Austalia. She discovers that the British textbooks and materials mean nothing to the children. She devises her own materials, field trips and fun to teach the children using their own environment as the curriculum.

Karen Wow...I really want to read this book. The Maori culture has special meaning after our trip to Australia.
