The return of Raffi to the kids music scene has been one of the most pleasant surprises from the past couple years of kids music.  His 2014 album Love Bug was a solid return to the industry, his voice and sensibility undimmed from the '70s and '80s when he almost single-handedly created the kids music section in record stores.  He's said he felt a "stirring" to make music, and that stirring continues as he releases his next album, Owl Singalong, on January 15, 2016.

He's already released one video from the new album, for the reggae-and-strings "Green Dream" and now he's released a second video.  It's for the title track, "Owl Singalong."  The track is classic Raffi -- gentle, funny, and featuring his voice, which remains the best male voice in kids music.  The video is pretty simple, little more than illustrations, but they're cute enough, and the song engaging enough, that it should work well for the preschoolers in your orbit.
