The Corner Grocery Store and Other Singable Songs

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Raffi is something of an heir to the children's music of such folkies as Pete Seeger and the Babysitters. In Corner Grocery Store and Other Singable Songs, he is especially interested in adapting some familiar folksongs -- "Pick a Bale o' Cotton," "Goodnight Irene" -- as children's songs, along with such traditional material as "Frère Jacques." He has a light, bouncy singing style that is irresistible to children and parents alike. Ages 3-7.

    Multi-generation Raffi Lovers

    I enjoyed my children's and my special time with Raffi. Now I enjoy these times with my grandchildren. The joy of Raffi's music never dulls with the years gone by. He has enriched us all.

    Very Funny and Singable. A Classic!

    These songs are very silly and singable. The title track, "Corner Grocery Store" is a Raffi classic and so funny. "Popcorn," "Boom Boom" and "Here Sits a monkey" are so funny, too. I just loved listening to this CD growing up. Some songs are gentle for snuggling and dancing, like "You'll Sing a Song," "Frere Jacques" and "Rock-A-Bye Baby." Some songs make me think about the happy days of growing up, like "My Way Home" and "Going on a Picnic." This is a very happy CD that brings back great memories. Highly recommended for your child(ren)!
