Kia Ora: You Can Be a Kiwi Too, by June Pitman-Hayes, Minky Stapleton and Ngaere Roberts

Kia ora, kia ora, welcome to our land! From singer-songwriter June Pitman-Hayes comes this enchanting new waiata for Kiwi children – and anyone new to NZ shores. Tamariki holiday at the beach, splash in water fountains, climb trees and toast marshmallows around a campfire – all the things we love to do, and share with others. Because YOU can be a Kiwi too!

• A simple celebration of community, welcoming with open arms and learning from others
• Features accompanying CD of the song in English and Māori, sung in lilting voice of June Pitman-Hayes, creator of Tāwhirimātea: A Song for Matariki
• Perfectly paired with the charming illustrations of Minky Stapleton, herself an immigrant to NZ shores
• A song for the children and whānau of Aotearoa, but universal in its message
