This pukapuka is part of The Whatumanawa Collection by Huia Publishers, helping tamariki process trauma, hardship, and grief.

There is also an English version called Nothing is Impossible.

Rangi’s life changes one night when he tries to protect his mum from being beaten by her boyfriend. But she is badly injured and taken to hospital. Rangi goes to live with Nan and Koro, and during this time, he gets a homework project he thinks is impossible – about his mum and her work. He thinks he can’t do it because his mum doesn’t work. But Nan and Koro know differently and get out photographs, articles and trophies to show Rangi her achievements and abilities as an activist, volunteer, fundraiser and sports champion. When Rangi shows these to his mum and they talk about the stories, she is reminded about her capabilities and self-worth. Rangi is inspired, works hard on the project, and his presentation is a success.
