I guess I am a Beluga grad although I was not familiar with the term until visiting this website. Singable Songs for the Very Young and More Singable Songs were the first two albums my parents (both teachers) bought for my brother and I growing up in Midland, Ontario. We never did attend a Raffi concert but spent many hours singing along with Raffi.

I am a 37 year old mother of 3 young boys and an elementary school principal. We speak French in our home and listen almost exclusively to French children's music in our home (Carmen Campagne, Danile Lavoie, Annie Brocoli) but Raffi is the English exception. Recently, my parents returned from a trip to Florida with a Raffi video (Raffi with the Rise and Shine Band) that my dad picked up at a garage sale for 50 cents. My children have been asking to watch it non stop every since! My 21 month old son, who's only language at this point is French, LOVES it!

I just wanted to share with you that Raffi's gently way, message of peace and signable songs are still as relevant today as they were 20 years ago. If Raffi ever performs in Ontario anymore, we would love to see him.

Merci pour la musique! Thanks for the music!
