Ten Little Kiwi Birds is a fun Kiwi re-imagination of a popular children’s nursery rhyme and playtime song. Award winning children’s music group Itty Bitty Beats and an award winning children’s author Peter Millett have teamed up to create a new piece of music for kids to sing and dance to. The result of their collaboration was a song inspired by Peter Millett’s Ten Little Kiwi Birds rhyme that featured in his children’s book Classic Rhymes For Kiwi Kids.
Three versions of Ten Little Kiwi Birds were created: an English version, Te Reo version and a bilingual version. Itty Bitty Beats wanted to ensure the song could be enjoyed by every whanau, kura and preschool in New Zealand. An innovative video has also been created by Peter Millett to accompany the song.
