‘The Happy Song’ Book + ‘Kākāriki: Simply Us’ CD


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

Categories: ,


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


Te Waiata Koa | The Happy Song is Loopy Tunes Preschool Music’s second bilingual children’s songbook.

Each of the books feature our hand-drawn bird characters introduced in our first book, ‘E Rima Ngā Manu | Five Little Birds’. In this second pukapuka, we follow Kiwi as emotions are explored, and conquered by remembering happy thoughts, with the help of friends!

‘The Happy Song’ waiata is track no.7 on our debut CD album, “Kākāriki: Simply Us”, and the reo Māori version, ‘Te Waiata Koa’, 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!
