"He Kirihimete Karakara Kiwi/It's A Colourful Kiwi Christmas" and "Ko te Pūtake mō te Kirihimete/The Reason for Christmas" are Loopy Tunes Preschool Music's final two bilingual children's songbooks!! If you'd like the books signed, and written for a specific person/children, just pop the details in the "Add A Note" section, on the Checkout page.
The books is based on two of our Christmas songs, "The Reason for Christmas" and "It's A Colourful Kiwi Christmas" and their Māori translated versions, "Ko te Pūtake mō te Kirihimete" and "He Kirihimete Karakara Kiwi". The songs are currently only available in digital form on Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play Music and all other major digital platforms.
Our vision to build a Rainbow Collection of books, started with
- a beautiful blue/kahurangi, for "E Rima Ngā Manu/Five Little Birds"
- then a sunshine yellow/kōwhai, for "Te Waiata Koa/The Happy Song"
- a soft purple/waiporoporo, for "He Uri Ngāti Hua-Rākau/Ngāti Fruit Salad Kid"
- a light Christmas green/kākāriki, for "He Kirihimete Karakara Kiwi/It's A Colourful Kiwi Christmas"
- and, finally, a very merry red/whero, for "Ko te Pūtake mō te Kirihimete/The Reason for Christmas"
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. We are also VERY excited to now be printing the books locally, right here in Christchurch!!
Please note: The book does 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.
THANK YOU all SO much for your support and we hope you and your whānau enjoy our new book!! xo
