The Kiwi go Marching One by One is a new twist of the classic song The Ants go marching. It doesn't have the counting but rather different adventures that the kiwi go on. There are some things in the book I had to explain to children like what a bivouac was and what it meant to top and tail. It is interesting to note that the kiwi in the pictures are all in separate hammocks rather than topping and tailing.

One of the things I appreciated about this book was the use of kiwi as a plural. As we know there is no 'S' the Maori language but so may people including authors think they should but an 'S' on the end of a Maori word. Perhaps it was the fact that the last half of the book was the Maori version of the song. I imagine it was very hard to translate into Maori while maintaining both the meaning and the tune.

The CD contains three tracks. The first is the English version of the story. I found as easy to follow along with the book but noticed that there were twice as many 'Booms' in the song than in the book. The second track is the Maori version of the song and the third is an instrumental track. We immediately recognized the voice of Jay Laga'aia as we have watched him on Play School and he had done other children's readalong books. He has a good clear voice and is a pleasure to listen to. The CD meant that the parent or teacher didn't have to reread the book constantly as the CD would give young children the independence. Miss Seven found the book was a bit babyish for her. I think the target audience are more three and four year olds.
