Over the school holidays, many children experience something called 'the summer slide'. If they don't have support and encouragement to read for themselves, their reading ability slides backwards when school's out.
Auckland Libraries run a fantastic programme to help combat this, but it needed a visual refresh. We created a friendly family of forest dwellers to help engage young readers. And, for the te reo version of the programme, we illustrated the evocative legend of Rehua and the three baskets of knowledge.
