The Pentatonic Song Book, written by Mark Holdaway and Kathryn Rambo, is a good complement to Playing the Pentatonic Kalimba (which deals with riffs and patterns and symmetry and things like that). The Song Book covers well known songs that you and your family will know. 64 pages, CD included. Songs are written in both Kalimba Tablature and in standard staff notation. This is a great book for players of all levels, but you need to have the Hugh Tracey Pentatonic Kalimba (or a similarly tuned instrument).
