Product Description

Amazon.com

In 1976 a young Toronto musician released a fun and lively record called Singable Songs for the Very Young. The artist was a fellow called Raffi, and in the liner notes he wrote at the time that "there are very few good children's records." True as that was in the '70s, Singable Songs became the No. 1 bestseller in its field and set the standard for today's greater volume of high-quality material. The Singable Songs Collection reissues the classic Singable Songs for the Very Young and its superlative successors, More Singable Songs and Corner Grocery Store, as a set. Raffi's exhilarating acoustic musicality and sense of humor shine brightly through. Single-digit-age kids and their parents will get a kick out of these silly, educational, and joyful songs, which range in subject matter and tone from shared peanut-butter sandwiches and instrumental ragtime to standards like "Goodnight, Irene." --Paige La Grone

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!

These wonderful singable songs are children's classics. Every parent should own this collection. Raffi's music is silly and "just right" for little children. Adults will find themselves singing along too!
With this collection, you get three of the five "must have" Raffi CD's. This collection, in my opinion, is the finest children's music ever recorded. Start listening early (age one).
The first Raffi disc, Singable Songs for the Very Young, revolutionized the way artists approached children's music. It stands as a benchmark to compare all other children's recordings against, and other children's music grades very poorly compared to Raffi. Raffi is the Mr. Rogers of children's music, but funny.
Also buy his concert video (pure magic!) or his concert CD, which older kids love too. Our family loves Raffi, and so will you!

Our family loves Raffi, and we want to share him with you. His songs are really silly, great to sing along with, and never seem to get old - even for us adults. We have all his tapes in our car, and the children ask for him every time we are out. His songs are just right for little people; nothing else can compare. Our kids love his music so much! I am so grateful we discovered his music.
We have all three CD's in this collection and love them all. My favorite Raffi is still Singable Songs for the Very Young (with a Peanut Butter Sandwich), but all the discs in this collection are wonderful.
Our other all-time favorite Raffi's, if we had to narrow them down, are Raffi in Concert with the Rise and Shine Band (CD) and Raffi in Concert (a must-have video). But this set is definitely worth owning. There are a dozen of other great CD's from Raffi to choose from, too, and any of them will do nicely with a peanut butter sandwich.

30 years ago Raffi set the standard, a standard nobody has been able to match since then. Sure there are choices for children's music, but nobody has made a life-long career writing and performing the worlds best family friendly music. Raffi has even written and performed for the Dalia Lama, who in turn, has written the forward to Raffi's "Child Honoring" ([...])

If you're looking to have fun with and enrich your children, Raffi never fails. He is the gold standard. And this collection contains the cornerstones to his career. A great collection starter.

I have 4 kids ranging in age from nearly 20 yrs down to 6 weeks old. The 2 older kids loved Raffi (on cassette) when they were little and when I bought all the Raffi CDs when my now 34 month old was first born, they had fun reminiscing and listening to the music all over again with their little brother. Heck, even I enjoy listening to Raffi in the car, LOL. It's fun music for the whole family, in my opinion. The lyrics are fun and the melodies are easy to learn and remember.

If you have young children, or know someone who does, this collection of music cannot be beat. Just ask the kids. If you want to know more about Raffi the man, read his recently authored autobiography called RAFFI: LIFE OF A CHILDREN'S TROUBADOUR. I enjoyed it from cover to cover. What a gift this man has given to the children of our world!

This is an excellant collection for kids of all ages! My only disappointment was that "Baby Baluga" was not part of this collection, and that there was no way to know that before I purchased it.

Hooray for The Singable Songs Collection. With 3 CDs this collection is a must for any parent whose child loves music. My daughter, 2 years, will go to the CD player and demand, "More music, Mommy!" when the CD ends. She loves to dance and sing to the simple fun tunes.
