In "Off to the Beach" it's a long and hot summer and Piri the Pukeko decides to go to the beach for a swim. Keri the Kiwi is keen to go to but she can't fly and it's too far for her to walk, so the Kiwi Critters work together and come up with a solution to help her.
Kids absolutely love this book and it doesn't take long before they learn to chant every line.

"I've had the privilege of being both the mother of a daughter who has loved Donna Blaber's holiday writing workshops and also a teacher whose class Donna has inspired as a visiting author. The children were so excited to get to hear the beginning of her newest book and it sparked great discussion on the importance of that first opening sentence in our writing. Donna spoke to all classes that day from the Year 0's through to the Year 8's. She also took a selected group of children for a special writers' workshop. They loved it! If your child has a passion for writing, definitely get them along to the workshops and if you need to inspire your class, organise a visit from Donna!" - Becky Overeem, Maungatapere School
