Tips for finding children's literature

To ensure that the material you find via Multisearch is designed for children, you need to add the phrase "juvenile fiction" to your search.  This will remove academic-level resources from your search results. For example, if you were looking for board books/picture books on animals you would do the following search: "juvenile fiction" animals                          

You can browse our collection of children's literature in te reo using the search "pukapuka whakaahua". We are still developing our collection of pictures books in te reo, so adding a specific subject to the search may not produce results.
