T is For Taniwha includes:

  • Clear line drawings

  • ABCs

  • Information about New Zealand

  • Original New Zealand designs

“Love the Kiwi theming - it's nice having something we can relate to, down here in the Pacific. I think the kids in my life are going to have a ball colouring in the pics.”

Elizabeth Sheridan, New Zealand


  • This is not your average generic colouring book, original New Zealand designs and a mix of entertainment and learning mean this book will continue to be a valuable resource even after its coloured. You get twice the bang for your buck.

  • Everybody loves to colour! Kids will be entranced for hours with the clear designs and adults may even be tempted to join in. Who knows, you may learn something.

After working for several years in a Montessori environment, I found myself constantly in search of children’s resources that included an aspect of education and personal growth. So much of what is marketed to children comes from America or the UK. I wanted to create T is for Taniwha so that Kiwi kids have something that was relevant to them, something to celebrate our amazing New Zealand culture.

“This is a great little colouring book, both in the illustrations hand drawn by the author and the information it provides on each page. It both entertains and educates, something few products like this achieve, I wish Australia had something similar.”

Daniel Robinson, Australia
