Mihi is a beautiful baby book that introduces ideas of me and my place in the world in the shape of a simple mihi or pepeha.

Mihi is a simple book to share with babies and talk about their whānau and place in the world. Repeating colours and shapes show the connections between waka, mountain, iwi through to mama, papa and the baby reader. This book is an introduction for children of any age to their own pepeha—and to the idea of a pepeha.
