He Uri Ngāti Hua-Rākau | Ngāti Fruit Salad Kid (book only)


‘He Uri Ngāti Hua-Rākau | Ngāti Fruit Salad Kid’ is the third book in the Rainbow Book Collection, and is a soft purple/waiporoporo.



He Uri Ngāti Hua-Rākau | Ngāti-Fruit Salad Kid is Loopy Tunes Preschool Music’s third 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 third pukapuka, we meet lots of animals from around the world, as we celebrate the different cultures that make each of us unique.

The ‘Ngāti-Fruit Salad Kid’ waiata is track no.13 on our debut CD album, “Kākāriki: Simply Us“, and the reo Māori version, ‘He Uri Ngāti Hua-Rākau’, 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:
