Super collection, never fails to put me in a happy mood...
on August 21, 2000
This set includes three of Raffi's most popular records and is a great way to build a collection. These songs never seem to wear thin or become annoying like many other arrangements do. In fact, I know the recordings so well that I often catch myself singing the next song before it starts.
The song selection is quite diverse. Some of the songs have a positive message, like about brushing your teeth or sharing with others. Other songs celebrate the joyful experience of being a child, like "Shake My Sillie's Out," "I Wonder If I'm Growing," or "Bumping Up and Down." Then there are ones that are just plain fun like "Willoughby Wallaby Woo" or "Oh Me, Oh My." But Raffi also includes some classic folk songs, like "Swing Low Sweet Chariot," "I've Been Working on the Railroad," and "Goodnight Irene." There are very few "duds" on this collection; most are the type of song that will just pop into your head someday, and for no reason at all you will find yourself humming it.
My daughter loves these CD's and always breaks out in a wide smile after hearing the first few chords. Partially, I think she smiles because they always put me in a good mood too. Hey, you can't beat that!
