Kōwhai Kids is Marion’s fifth book in her Nature Book Series.

Spring has arrived!

The kōwhai girls are ablaze with delight,
The boys full of mischief and fun.
The birds appear flashing their wings.
But wait …

Why does kererū annoy tūī?
And what do the kōwhai kids
want other kids to know?


Kōwhai Kids is a creative non-fiction children’s picture book and the fifth in Marion’s successful nature series. Beautifully illustrated by New Zealand wildlife illustrator Anna Evans, children can learn about our native kōwhai through the eyes of its flowers. The kōwhai kids banter and play amongst the branches of their tree. They receive visitors – some scary some friendly – but they’d really like other children to learn about their special tree. Kōwhai Kids begins with an info page and ends with a guide on how to grow a kōwhai tree.
