‘Five Little Birds’ Book + ‘Kākāriki: Simply Us’ CD


The first book in our ‘Rainbow Book Collection’ AND our debut CD album!

Categories: ,


The first of our ‘Rainbow Collection’ books and debut CD album.


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:

‘Kākāriki: Simply Us’ is Loopy Tunes Preschool Music’s debut album!

A labour of love, we bring to you a 13-track collection 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 green/kākāriki.



All books purchased from our online shop are printed by Blueprint Limited, here in Ōtautahi/Christchurch. This book is also available as an e-book.

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.


We hope you and your tamariki enjoy reading and singing along to all our waiata and books together!
