    Raffi is the best!

    I grew up listening to Raffi and I loved him then. Now, I am so excited that I can have my little girl listen to him. I would say that he is great listening for babies through lower elementary school students, and parents too.

    Raffi helps kids

    Raffi's music can help children in many different ways.When a parent has difficulty getting her baby to sleep through the night, Raffi's soothing voice can calm the baby and stop him from crying. Raffi can also help medically fragile children by singing "The More We Get Together" when the child catches a cold or another respiratory virus.

    This One is the Best!

    I am so happy to find Raffi. Raffi entertained my daughters as they were growing up. He now entertains my grand-children. His talents with music and song are wonderful! We are so blessed to have such an entertainer for our children. My grand-daughter and I listen to Raffi as we travel to school every day. Raffi sings such happy music and the Rise and Shine Band is great! Thank you! Raffi! for your musical investment in these little lives. May God Always Bless you!

    Awesome for kids and parents!!

    My twin sister and I grew up with Raffi and his classic childrens songs.Till this day we still talk about how ''cool'' Raffi was(we are 17!). We danced, laughed, and had fun with Raffi,because of him we have lots of sentimental memories.We still remember all the words to his songs.Its great for children to grow up with, and to enjoy with parents. WE LOVE YOU RAFFI!!

    Wonderful! A Best of Raffi Collection, the Finest Children's Music Ever!

    Raffi is the greatest children's musician of all time. Raffi's music is fun and ''just right'' for the very young. Kids love Raffi. Adults will find themselves singing too! It's music that everyone enjoys, and this CD is incredible. All the songs are great. ''Baby Beluga'' gets my vote for greatest children's song of all time. Raffi revolutionized children's music with his debut album, Singable Songs for the Very Young. It stands as a landmark to compare children's music with. Raffi understands children and children's music. He's the Mr. Rogers of children's music, but silly. Raffi is so much better than almost anything else out there for children! I can't recommend this CD strongly enough. Singable Songs Collection (his first 3 albums) is also a must own and a great first choice. And get his concert video, A Young Children's Concert. Our family loves Raffi, and so will you!
