Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Remember the thrill of planting a seed as a child and seeing it grow into a plant? The Piriri Tree is a gentle new children's book that celebrates the cycle of life. Author Merito Tawhara chronicles the events of Hemi's life following his discovery of a piriri seed. At his koro's suggestion, Hemi plants the seed and the rest of the book explores both Hemi's growth and the growth of the piriri, which becomes part of the landscape to Hemi's life. In this age of consumer madness, The P'riri Tree suggests that often, the simplest things in life are the most meaningful.

Picture story book for children ; Published simultaneously in Maori ; When Hemi's grandfather tells him the tiny seed he has found is the beginning of a great tree, Hemi thinks it might be a trick, but he plants the seed. Years pass, the boy becomes a man, and the seed becomes a tree. Now it is Hemi's granddaughter who wonders how a tiny seed can become a great tree. Suggested level: junior
