The Best Book or Series in Primary Publishing was awarded to Learning Media and editor Susan Paris for School Journal Part 4 Number 2 2011, a history of rugby in New Zealand with a 1981 Springbok tour focus. This is the second straight year Susan has won this award with School Journal Part 4 Number 3 2010 taking the award last year.

The inaugural Te Reo Māori Book category was awarded to Learning Media and authors Che Wilson and Carol Buchanan for Te Wharekura 90 – Te Mana o Ruapehu. The judges described the book as an intriguing journey captured through storytelling and centered on the mountain Ruapehu.

This website contains a number of animated clips in te reo māori and is available free to schools and the general public at http://hereoora.tki.org.nz/Reomations.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
