‘E Rima Ngā Manu | Five Little Birds’ is the first book in our Rainbow Book Collection, and is a beautiful blue/kahurangi.
E Rima Ngā Manu | Five Little Birds is Loopy Tunes Preschool Music’s first bilingual children’s songbook, and our most popular pukapuka to date!!
In this first pukapuka, we meet the main bird characters who feature in all five books in our Rainbow Book Collection – Pūkeko, Ruru, Kea, Tūī, and Kiwi, who introduce themselves, one-by-one.
The ‘Five Little Birds’ waiata is track no.1 on our debut CD album, “Kākāriki: Simply Us“, and the reo Māori version, ‘E Rima Ngā Manu’, was released in digital-form only. Check them both out on all major digital music platforms and hit the links below to watch and listen on YouTube:
