Sam and Flo books

Our Sam and Flo books are a great way to engage young children in a conversation about water.

Sally Smith - our previous education coordinator - has crafted the tale of Sam and a water drop named Flo as they embark on a fantasy quest to find out where their drinking water comes from.

Beautifully illustrated by Auckland artist Emma Scheltema, Sam and Flo was a finalist in the Best Primary Resource category at the 2018 Copyright Licensing Education Awards, and is much-loved at many Auckland schools.
