Rounder Records releases Raffi's Fun Food Songs, a collection of 15 songs that encourage children to have fun with food, served up by the legendary children's entertainer.

The compilation, which draws from Raffi's quintessential Rounder albums, features beloved classics such as "Peanut Butter Sandwich, "Bananaphone," and "Going On a Picnic," as well as traditional tunes like "Down By The Bay" and "Day O." He even makes tooth brushing fun with the snappy "Brush Your Teeth." The album's cover art is by award-winning children's author and illustrator Eugenie Fernandes.

Kids of all ages delight in Raffi's lyrics about everything from apples and bananas to coconuts. Fun Food Songs offers parents and children a collection of lively and entertaining tunes to sing along with while sharing those special mealtime - and anytime -- moments together.

Raffi, a singer, writer, producer, author, lecturer, and tireless advocate for children, is best known for his work as an entertainer whose string of gold and platinum-selling recordings in North America includes his classic song, "Baby Beluga". His albums continue to chart, many years after their initial release. He has been called "the most popular children's singer in the English-speaking world" (Washington Post) and "Canada's all time children's champion" (Toronto Star), and he is also a recipient of the Order of Canada and the United Nations' Earth Achievement Award. His commitment to honoring his young fans changed society's outlook on music made for children.

In 2010, Raffi founded The Centre for Child Honouring on Salt Spring Island, BC. With the motto "Respecting Earth & Child," the Centre is at the heart of a global movement that views honoring children as the best way to create sustainable, peacemaking societies. The organization develops resources for parents, educators and policy-makers around the world.

Recently, Raffi co-founded the Red Hood Project, a grassroots movement to make the internet safe for young social media users. His recently published book, Lightweb Darkweb: Three Reasons to Reform Social Media, was inspired in part by the suicide of Vancouver, BC teen Amanda Todd, who was subjected to years of online harassment. The book offers three reasons for social media reform, and highlights children's developmental needs as a key missing consideration in the digital revolution.
