    “I had to share this. I just put the Joseph Parker book out on the new book stand and a boy made a beeline for it and was so excited because, ‘My Dad saw him fight Carlos Takam.’ So I can imagine the father/son bonding that is going to take place tonight when he brings it home – so cool.”

    “Kia orana David, our year 7 and 8 boys were outside the library waiting for their teachers, I could hear them getting restless so I I pulled out Joseph Parker’s books and immediately had their attention.Even the Principal came out into the foyer to listen and told me to keep going. I mentioned Manu Vatuvei keeping a journal and the consequence dice if they didn’t do their homework, the Highlander players reading and writing, and doing presentations that include critical thinking, inquiry, reflection, everything they are learning now. All I could hear was, “Woe!” and “I can’t believe it.” My husband picked up Joseph Parker’s book and started reading it. Amazing .. he’s not a book reader. My home is gonna own a few titles too. You’re on to a good thing David, you saw the need for our tamariki and the Pacific community. You are a gift to us! I thank you, your family and the support whanau around you. Keep it up. Meitaki maata.”
