My thirty-year-old grandson loved this book when he was a little boy, and I wanted the two-year-old grandson to have the same book.

   AWESOME!
My daughter absolutely loves this song to read! And so does her grandma and I! Sometimes she brings the book to me as soon as she wakes up, which isn't so great for me in the mornings specially when she wakes up at 7 a.m.... My daughter is 23 months.

   Be sure to get the music
I used it with my 4 year old and they loved it. They also made their own rhymes and had a ball.

   Love this book
The book is a great read, too. I remember singing this song as a kid and was super excited to share it with my kids. My kids absolutely love the pictures, and I think the whole thing is a great story.

   Fun book!
You've got to listen to the Raffi song to fully appreciate this book, Raymond said. As we walk through the pages, I feel so happy that she is so happy.

   Back to my home I dare not go...I dont want to listen to my mom
Michael Jackson's "Don't You Worry About the Hinds?" was a hit, but the chorus disappointed many people. Like the rhyme? Why not lead kids to sing again, I dare not go? For now, I'd say, 'Whatever the creator deems it to be,' she said. It's a catch tuney, fun to sing. dislike the chorus. I changed it to, down by the bay, where the watermelons grow, I like to play, it doesn't snow, but if it did, I'd simply say, "makes the same amount of sense to me as the original chorus." Other than that, I'm not that big of a fan. It's great to make your own silly rhymes, and it's good for teaching the rhyming concept.

   A great book
I have a one-year-old who is obsessed with this book and song. We originally checked it out from the library and she made me read it. It's a cute little song for your child.

   The whole family loves Raffi!!!
The whole family loves Raffi! Now we can sing those songs to our babies with a board book they will love! Beautifully illustrated, this book will last generations. It's great to be back home, said Blair.

   My son loves this book
It's just that I must sing this book three times a day. He's really into it, and I've got it memorized. I usually read one or two books a day, but I don't usually do it three or four times. My son is 8 months now and we've been singing it to him since he was 4 months old.
