Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-From "Baby Beluga" to "The Wheels on the Bus," young Raffi fans will enjoy this oversized anthology of his wacky, catchy favorites. Selected full-color illustrations or photos from the original books, with pictures by Jose Aruego, Nadine Westcott, Bruce McMillan, and others, decorate pages that feature the individual song's lyrics written in verse form, followed by a simple score. Activities for extending the reading/singing session are given at the book's end. Although the large format invites group sharing, beginning readers familiar with the songs will benefit from individual perusal.-Claudia Cooper, Ft. Stockton Independent School District, TX
Susan Dove Lempke
A compilation of 10 previously published picture songbooks, this gives librarians and parents the opportunity for a Raffi songfest in one neat volume. Three or four pages are devoted to each song, with all the text, the music, and a few of the illustrations from the original book. Raffi's most popular songs are here--among them, "Baby Beluga," "Shake My Sillies Out," and "Down by the Bay," --and the artwork by established children's illustrators includes photographs by Bruce McMillan and paintings by Lillian Hoban and True Kelley. With Raffi's concerts still selling out, this collection will be a worthwhile purchase for most libraries.
