Barnes & Noble - Moira McCormick
His endearing vocals, infectious tunes, and wholehearted respect for children make Raffi’s albums an indispensable part of the family music library. This calm, bearded Armenian-Canadian -- the first superstar in the children's music world -- has made music that thoroughly enthralls toddlers and early-graders since 1976. But if you're a brand-new parent, or just somehow missed the Raffmeister when your older kids were born, now's the time to start collecting. Rounder Records has compiled three favorite Raffi albums into a new box set called RAFFI'S BOX OF SUNSHINE.

Barnes & Noble - Moira McCormick
His endearing vocals, infectious tunes, and wholehearted respect for children make Raffi’s albums an indispensable part of the family music library. This calm, bearded Armenian-Canadian -- the first superstar in the children's music world -- has made music that thoroughly enthralls toddlers and early-graders since 1976. But if you're a brand-new parent, or just somehow missed the Raffmeister when your older kids were born, now's the time to start collecting. Rounder Records has compiled three favorite Raffi albums into a new box set called RAFFI'S BOX OF SUNSHINE. It's Rounder's second Raffi box; the first was THE SINGABLE SONGS COLLECTION, which contains Raffi's first three albums, including his all-time bestseller, SINGABLE SONGS FOR THE VERY YOUNG. This new set compiles the albums RISE AND SHINE, ONE LIGHT ONE SUN, and EVERYTHING GROWS, and includes several dozen Raffi favorites. Interspersed among original songs such as "Rise and Shine," "The Numbers Rumba," and "The Bowling Song" are traditional kids' songs "Wheels on the Bus," "Tingalayo," and the sure-to-fetch-giggles "Apples and Bananas", kid-friendly songs by music celebs the Beatles' "Octopus's Garden", multilingual tunes from other lands Mexico's "De Colores," France's "Savez-vous Planter des Choux," Japan's "Haru Ga Kita", and well-loved African-American spirituals "He's Got the Whole World," Raffi's signature concert closer "This Little Light of Mine." What's more, the box set includes bonus stickers by children's artist Eugenie Fernandes. RAFFI'S BOX OF SUNSHINE is an ideal introduction to an essential artist and an equally stellar addition to the fledgling Raffi music collection.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Raffi's Box of Sunshine collects three of the children's' singer's albums: 1982's Rise & Shine, 1985's One Light One Sun, and 1987's Everything Grows. Ranging from traditional children's songs like "Row, Row, Row" and "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star," originals like "Let's Make Some Noise," and spiritual favorites like "This Little Light of Mine" and "He's Got the Whole World," this box set highlights Raffi's diverse and uplifting music.

    Children's Classics. Fun for Children.

    This is the best children's music ever! Raffi is our children's favorite musician, and we own a lot of children's music. This collection is a compilation of his best. All these songs are so singable. They never get old. You'll find yourself singing along, too! This music is good for your children's development. We also would highly recommend any of the 3 excellent CD's as stand-alone purchases, but you save money with the 3-CD collection. We also highly recommend the 3-CD collection Singable Songs Collection.
