KPE Episode 92 - "Tulevai and the Sea" by Joy Cowley

"Tulevai and the Sea" by Joy Cowley

Thomas has read this legend which is retold by one of New Zealand's best known children's authors. Folau acts as DJ in his first podcast. Both boys are Year 5 students from Room 16. Tulevai and the Sea, was written by Joy Cowley and illustrated by Manu Smith, (English and Maori editions). In this story a mother's love is greater than the sea. The sea wants the strong young boy who is fishing in his boat for itself; unable to lure him the sea enlists the help of the wind to sink his canoe. His mother's love is strong enough to push back the sea, revealing terrible monsters, before finding her son crying in a coral forest.
We know you will love the pictures in this story. Tell us what you think.

    Hi Thomas and Folau - I have just listened to your podcast of Tulevaia and I thought you did a great job!

    I could tell when you were excited about parts of the story because I could hear your voices getting excited too!!
    I really liked it when it sounded like you guys were just having a chat and sounding natural.
