Can anyone recommend a song book with classic Hawaiian songs for the ukulele. Preferably with a cd.

"He Mele Aloha" is a very good resource for Hawaiian songs but no cd. The "Hawaiian Style Ukulele" series volumes 1 trough 3 does come with cds and standard musical notation for those that can read music.

This is a good one. I took an evening session with Kimo Hussey, and this was the required text. It's full of Hawaiian songs, but there is no CD or actual music notes. He said that was largely because of copyright concerns, but you can find these songs online.

The Tulsa Ukulele Club has a new Hawaiian PDF, but I can't find a link to it.
