The Waka Story Book Series is an extensive range of story books for all age groups of children. Some are written in English and others in some of the vernacular languages of the Pacific: Fijian, Kiribatese, Samoan, Niuean, Bislama, Solomon Islands Pijin, Tuvaluan, Nauruan, Hindi and Urdu. They are illustrated and written by Pacific writers especially for Pacific children. Prices are low, so they are widely bought by schools for their libraries. These story books boost literacy and language development in the USP region and beyond
In addition to the story books, there are eleven blown-up books for shared reading, six Marine Science books, six Environmental Science and two Shell books. There are also posters in English, Fijian, Hindi and Samoan as well as CDs and audio tapes in reading packages.
