Raffi Rocks Jun 3, 2008
Cute book. Nice to have as a compliment to the audio. If you don't have the CD, get it.
One of my favorites May 19, 2008
As a child this was one of my favorites and now am excited that I have a little one of my own to sing it to. My husband is in the Army and actually calls me from work to tell me he cant get it out of his head. As for my daughter, she is 19 months and really likes looking at the book and dancing to us singing it. This is the same author as Baby Beluga which is just as much a favorite as this one.

I love anything to do with Raffi. I raised my children singing his wonderful songs and now I am beginning to share them with my granddaughter. I am never disappointed with anything that Raffi produces. Thank you for having his collection available on this site.
