The family attended ‘Around the World in 80 Tales’. Stories in 14 or so languages were being told. It was a great day.
I got out three children’s books in both Maori and English: Cat in the Hat, Where the Wild Things Are, and Gruffalo. Mami also found me the Japanese translation of Tara Road. Wonderful.
But maybe best of all was making the acquaintance of a couple from Christchurch. Both of them are originally Dutch. He is in engineering, and she teaches sign language.
Sachi enjoyed The Hungry Caterpillar. She has already invented a sign language name for herself.
