    “I have made your Pasifika Heroes books part of our English Faculty’s Literacy Power-Ups. Our students are so engaged by your stories that link to their cultures and make them proud. Our English teachers are loving learning more themselves and seeing our students’ level of engagement. Looking forward to more, more, more from you

    “This week we kicked off a whole school reading 30 minute dash. This was introduced with your books. We have four boxes of your books for our four Village groups. Staff were buzzing at how engaged all the students were even those boys that you just would not expect to read. We are just buzzing at their response. Malo, ma faafetai tele lava.”
