For nearly four decades, children's troubadour and independent label pioneer Raffi has been the world's best-selling and most influential children's entertainer, delighting successive generations of kids and their parents with his playful, exuberant personality and his irresistibly infectious songs.

Raffi has long been a passionate advocate for children and a sustainable world for today's youth. Love Bug resounds with Child Honouring principles and affirms Raffi's place as the legendary children's artist we all know him to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Raffi does it again! July 17, 2014
Format:Audio CD
My girls and I LOVE this album!

I appreciate how the songs promote real play, especially with so many digital devices around nowadays.

One thing I really like about this album is that it is enjoyable for all ages:

My 6 year old has picked up on many words in 'Mama Loves It' and wants to help more around the house (Thanks, Raffi!) she also enjoys "To the Park" and can relate to all the words in the song "Hey, WE do that, too" she says.

Blue White planet is one of our favourite songs to spin/dance around the house to.

Doggone woods is so much fun, and we love when Raffi barks...Lots of giggles when this song plays.

I find my 10 yr old singing along to "Free to Play", and "Cool Down Reggae"

We were also excited to hear "On Hockey days" as it is one of our favourites.

Thanks, Raffi for yet another timeless album to add to our collection of music that will be played again and again and again...

5.0 out of 5 stars New, different, and absolutely praiseworthy! July 28, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Like many around our age, my husband and I both spent a solid chunk our childhoods listening to and loving Raffi. Hearing about this new album made me so excited and I immediately preordered. Truly, I am not disappointed. While Love Bug is different in a few ways from earlier albums, I consider the differences a change to be embraced! Every song on the album has what virtually no other album released these days has, and that's an unwaveringly positive message to our kids! No matter the musical genre of the song (and several are covered on the album), the positivity remains steadfast in Love Bug. The younger kids will have so much fun listening to tracks like "The Doggone Woods," and parents might even become a little emotional (in a great way) listening to the brilliant story of "Seeing The Heart" or the perfectly beautiful melody of "In The Real World." You may end up having to cut short a song YOU really like on the album to please a toddler begging to listen to their favorite tracks, but that's the kind of issue that's not a bad problem to have for a well-rounded album. Raffi, thank you for continuing to advocate for children, for us before and for ours now. Your heart and soul for inspiring imagination, consciousness, and love in kids is unparalleled.

5.0 out of 5 stars All I Really Need is a Raffi Song in My Heart! July 29, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a delight to have this new record from Raffi. As usual, he delivers sincere and joyful music to children and adults. And yet again, I am in love with his voice, message, intention, dedication, and delivery. I love all of these songs! Right now my personal favorite on this album is "Cool Down Reggae" because it has already calmed me down when I was stressed out in traffic with an unhappy child in the back seat. My child seems to love "Doggone Woods" the best, judging by the howling she does when it comes on. Thanks A Lot, sir. This is one bug that we love to have around!

Full disclosure: I am relatively new to Raffi. I only really started exploring and buying his music in early 2013 when I gave birth to my own child. I remembered, vaguely, hearing about "Baby Beluga" on the sitcom Full House when I was a kid; that lone memory was what sparked me to look him up on YouTube. After watching a recording of a live performance there, I was moved to buy the 3CD set of his Singable Songs albums. Wow, was I blown away. What fun, pure, generous, and thoughtful music! We now have almost everything he's released and everything is just so wonderful. I sing "Listen to the Horses" and "Douglas Mountain" every night at bedtime. All this month we've been singing about the five green and speckled frogs... "Bananaphone" is a constant source of giggles in our home... I could go on and on to prove this basic point: Raffi has fast become an important part of our family and we are grateful for his dedication and commitment to children through his music and activism. I recommend him to everyone I know.

Anyone else even considering making children's music should study his complete oeuvre, just ss an aspiring painter should study Van Gogh. I remarked to someone recently that Raffi is to children's music what Neil Young is to rock, what Joni Mitchell is to singer/songwriters. And I'm not even Canadian! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Bug...love every fun-filled moment! July 17, 2014
By BHinTO
Format:Audio CD
Love Bug, Raffi's new collection of songs, has my whole family humming! I have three kids of varying ages and interests who have all fallen in love with this CD. My 11 year old sings "Turn This World Around" even when the cd isn't on! I love that because he is internalizing the concept that what he does will affect generations to come. My 6 year old adores the title song "Love Bug" and "On Hockey Days" will certainly be a staple as we dress him for his favourite sport! My toddler is already saying 'doggy song!" requesting "Doggone Woods" (Raffi's 'bark' is contagious!!) As for Mom (me!), Raffi's rendition of "This Land Is Your Land" takes me right back to my childhood and leaves me with goosebumps. No matter what the age or stage, Love Bug has songs for every member of your family. Bring home this well-worth-the-wait new CD and watch everyone come together in song after fun-filled song!!

I grew up listening to Raffi and was so excited to share Raffi with my son. Raffi is his favorite. Naturally I was beyond excited when I heard that Raffi was making a new CD. His new cd is stupendous and definitely lived up to the beluga grads expectations! The songs are catchy and are full of wonderful messages. We love dancing and listening to Love Bug and have had the cd on repeat since we got it! Great job Raffi!! You rock!!
