This week on The Children’s Hour, we visit with the world’s most beloved children’s musician, Raffi! He’ll share some of his brand new work with us, and answer our many questions. Plus, Albuquerque’s new Poet Laureate Mary Oishi has a poem for us, and the kids in the Extinction Diaries have some good news about elephant shrews.  

Here’s some links to the songs you heard Raffi perform today, that are not available on CD but only online:

Portland Moms – Song about Black Lives Matter protests

Young People Marching – Song for young climate activists

For All You Do – Song for essential workers

Dylan Sings Quarantine – Song about Covid quarantine

Do We Love Enough? – Song about the threat of global warming
