Newspaper Review for Hello! Kia Ora! Welcome new friend!
This article asked some great questions:
“There is a section in the back about body language, do you feel this is important for young children to understand and if so why”
Yes, it’s very helpful for children. Emotions are expressed verbally and non-verbally. We all use body language to communicate, it is a form of language.

Body language can help them initiate asking a friend to join them for play.
