Singable Songs for the Very Young based on 0 ratings. 10 reviews.
I'm not sure why the overview says "Ages 4-10." This is ideally suited for toddlers. I put it on for my daughter when she was about 6 months old and she didn't really react. At about 12 months old, I put it on again and she began to sing along with Baa Baa Black Sheep and over the course of the next year she learned them all, enthusiastically moving to the music and communicating her desire to hear it again and again. I consider this album her introduction to music.
I have worked in a daycare for over 15 years and Raffi is just as popular with my children now, as he was then. He is a timeless children's artist. I love his music as much as my children do. This is a super CD, that you will never regret purchasing. I use it everyday!
All the songs are pretty good except for the Spider Song where the words include ''I wish I were Dead!'' I am trying to figure out a way to skip this song. I really don't want my 3 year old running around saying he 'wished he were dead!'' If you like Raffi, you will LOVE Jim Gill sings the Sneezing Song and other Contagious Tunes!
I have been listening to Raffi since I was 4 years old and my my four year old loves him. Thanx Raffi you truly are a gifted star. This album brings back such great memories of my childhood and brings my daughter and I closer together.
I love listening to Raffi, as well as do my children. I am a early childhood teacher and they love to sing and dance to music. It is hard to find music for toddlers as well as preschooler that is appropriate. Raffi is a favorite. I have almost all of his CD's.
My year old dances, claps and stomps his feet. He points to the CD player whenever we are in his room to play Raffi. This has gotten us through A LOT of long car rides, even dad sings...
I have many childrens CD's (baby Einstein, Little People, lullabies etc..etc..) but none of them compare to Raffi. My son who is 2 yrs old dances through the entire CD. Thank you Raffi for all the smiles and laughs. You are awesome!!
This is the best children's music CD ever according to many educators and parents. It really is very special for very young children ages 9 months to 6 years. It's so silly, singable, snuggable and fun! Your toddler will just love this music! This is the one CD that every parent should own. You can also buy it as part of the Masterpiece 3-CD collection called ''Raffi: Singable Songs Collection.''
Easy for parents and children to listen to. Some new (original) songs and some old ones, all well-performed. Our nine-month-old granddaughter was swaying to the music.
