Te Waiata Koa | The Happy Song (book only)


‘Te Waiata Koa | The Happy Song’ is the second book in the Rainbow Book Collection, and is a beautiful yellow/kōwhai.



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:
