Two Books + CD

** NEW Book, Boardgame, and Combo Deals, out now **



"Te Waiata Koa/The Happy Song" and "E Rima Ngā Manu/Five Little Birds" are Loopy Tunes Preschool Music's first two, bilingual, children's songbooks, in our intended Rainbow Collection!!   If you'd like the book signed, and written for a specific person/children, just pop the details in the "Add A Note" section, on the Checkout page.


The books are based on two of our songs, both of which, feature on our debut CD album, "Kākāriki: Simply Us". We have also recorded the Māori equivalent of both songs. "E Rima Ngā Manu" was released in September 2019, and "Te Waiata Koa", will be released on Wednesday, 4 March. Both are/will only (be) available to download or stream on all major digital platforms.


A true showcase of local Christchurch talent, knowledge and expertise, this project would not have been possible without the collaborative efforts of some amazing wāhine toa! Check out more info on the book collab. team, here.


Please note: The books do NOT come with a CD of the songs, as we have opted towards a more sustainable approach, by encouraging readers to listen to the songs on all major digital platforms (including YouTube Music, Apple Music/iTunes, Spotify, etc), as they read, instead.



"Kākāriki: Simply Us" is Loopy Tunes Preschool Music's debut album!! 


A labour of love, we bring to you a mixture of Siu's originals and some favourites, in the style that we are known for, acoustic guitar and vocals - in other words... simply us! Our intention with "Kākāriki" is to build a rainbow music cd collection for all our lovely followers, starting with the Loopy Tunes, green/kākāriki.


The album's 13 tracks, includes:

  •  Five Little Birds (a Siu Williams-Lemi original)
  •  No One Like You (previously sung by John Denver, in a Muppets Special called "Rocky Mountain Holiday" in the early 80s)
  •  Incy Wincy Spider/Sipaita Si'i Si'i (an old in English and Tongan)
  •  Hungry Puku (a Siu Williams-Lemi original)
  •  Tīrama, Tīrama/Twinkle Twinkle (an old favourite, in Māori and English)
  •  E Rere Taku Poi (a Māori poi song)
  •  Happy Song (a Siu Williams-Lemi original)
  •  What Are You Wearing? (a Siu Williams-Lemi original)

  •  Peek-A-Boo Teddy (a Siu Williams-Lemi original)
  •  Catch A Falling Bubble (Catch A Falling Star) (a scarf and bubbles song) 
  •  Ngāti-Fruit Salad Kid (a Siu Williams-Lemi original)


Also check out our "Kākāriki" Props packs, which are available to order individually, or as a combo deal on their own or with our CD. They are great for your child to use to engage with the song - the perfect accompaniment!! Our Props packs include:
