The tale of a hungry Kererū and his mates at the bach.

"Kererū’s BBQ" book combines fun rhymes, stunning watercolour illustrations, and the use of basic Te Reo Māori to tell the tale of a hungry Kererū (pronounced Care-dare-doo) who invites his mates to the bach for a BBQ with some delicious kiwi favourites to feast on. A gorgeous New Zealand children's book, it's as educational as it is fun, teaching your kiddos about factual birds, their habitat and food. It's a great read for the whole family!

Karyn - Author

My first book, Kererū's BBQ was inspired by my daughter Indie and our many visits to the Bay, exploring the picturesque surroundings and getting to know all the stunning, friendly and well fed local birds. Indie and I love all creatures, especially our native birds! I'm not one to sit still for long, everyday Indie and I are out adventuring with our dog Roxy and I always have creative projects on the go, usually starting one before finishing the last haha. I hope you and your little ones love our books.

Jess - Illustrator

Kia ora, thank you for reading our books with your little ones. I have enjoyed getting up close and personal creating these illustrations of these wonderful New Zealand natives. My family and I love the outdoors and are so grateful to call this place home. I have two adventurous, animal loving, fast growing boys, Blake and Keanu whom I’ve loved sharing this books journey with. I am also Mum to a black and white cat called Lola.

What Customers Have Said


Naked Baby Eco Boutique is my favorite online business for baby shopping. The clothing is very well made and eco friendly and the service is excellent. I highly recommend it.

Kathy Barnes

Ordering online for gifts was super easy! Great website and super fast delivery. Fantastic quality teething toys and wooden blocks. Such a cool store Ashley, thank you! :-) xx

Georgia McChlery

Ashley has gone out of her way to help me every time I've ordered, and honestly I'm starting to order more and more. It's hard to find truly eco baby products you can trust. It's so nice that Ashley has done the work for me. Postage is fast, communication is prompt and the website is lovely to use.

Louise Saunders
