Rubbish is the latest release in the Kiwi Critters series of books for young children aged 0-6 years.
In the story there's rubbish everywhere: in the stream, in the dunes, and in the sea. The Kiwi Critters don't like it so they decide to have a tidy up.
The story encourages youngsters to do the right thing with their litter and highlights its impact on the environment, through the eyes of the Kiwi Critters characters.
All Kiwi Critter books are 100% created and printed in New Zealand using vegetable based inks and low environmental impact print processing methods.
The books are sized for little hands to hold (10.5cm x 15cm) and consist of 20 pages including the cover.
Donna Blaber writes fiction and non-fiction for children and adults. She is an experienced journalist, magazine editor and author.
Check out the creative writing workshops I run for kids during the school holidays!
"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
