We often take our Te Reo Singalong show on the road, performing shows from Northland to Southland and lots of places in between.
We often travel around New Zealand to schools and preschools where we bring our Te Reo Singalong books to life. We dress up in costumes and use props and puppets to make the show really entertaining. We always thoroughly enjoy meeting the wonderful teachers and children who are so enthusiastic about seeing us bring our Te Reo Singalong books to life. Many children sit patiently and watch as we set up our show, ready for the performance.
Sharon’s favourite comment at one of our recent events was when one little boy, who was so excited about the prospect of what was to come, shouted “I can’t believe it!!!” For more information about having a Te Reo Singalong show at your centre or school, email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of location and preferred timing. She will get back to you with a price and range of possible dates.

I absolutely love and adore Sharon Holt’s beautiful Te Reo Singalong books, and so do the children. They have been the only books, that I have read, that truly capture every single child’s attention. The illustrations, singing and music are just amazing and they truly are a treasured resource in our centre and at home. Thank you Sharon!"
Nicola Donaldson, teacher
Te Reo Singalong books have been an amazing support within our centre. They have helped to break the barrier of not feeling confident to kōrero Māori. Our tamariki love the songs and stories and often ask for them by name. These books have helped us to unpack many subjects, especially around Christmas, Matariki, animals and insects. The catchy tunes have helped us as kaiako and our tamariki to remember and share in te reo Māori. Thank you Sharon for all the amazing books. We always await the next one."
Grace Williams, early childhood educator
Māori resources that work and are actually used are something that teachers are always looking for, and I think that these are the best!"
Lindsay Ray, teacher and mum
We absolutely love the Te Reo Singalong Books that Sharon has created and are extremely fortunate to have such a fantastic resource in our school. We have been working hard to develop our te reo programmes at our school. We have found that we can use Sharon’s books to support teaching and learning and provide an exciting way for students to engage in learning the language."
Jade Butler, Hinuera School
I’ve been learning the Māori language for years. I was very slow and it was hard to keep myself motivated. Te Reo Singalong is exactly what I needed. It’s easy and enjoyable. I appreciate the high-quality music as well as the books. Words, music and the music arrangement are all well-considered. It’s not only for kids but also for adult learners like me!"
Michiko Ohsaku, book translator, Tokyo, Japan
I actually love them all these books, as they capture different elements that tamariki and kaiako can relate to. The children in my centre get so much enjoyment from these books and love to sing along. We get so excited when we know a new one is on the way! It has also helped me move ahead on my te reo journey. Keep the books coming."
Amina Ahmad, ece teacher
These books are extraordinary! The kids love the rhythm, the repetitiveness of the text and the way the books relate to their experiences. Just amazing!"
Trish Horrobin, special needs teacher
These books are much loved by the kids, and are a valuable part of our commitment to honouring Te Tiriti o Waitangi here at Playcentre."
Stacey Burnell, Ellerslie Playcentre
Our centre LOVES your books so much. I even go home singing Me Haere! They are very catchy tunes."
