My now 10 month old son received this book from the PJ Library and it has been a favorite since we got it. The words and rhymes are so catchy. He reaches for this book for me to read to him every night and even in the middle of the day if I say a line of the book to him such as "ducks have quacks and frogs have ribbits you have Yiddish when you kibbitz" it puts the biggest smile on his face. It is especially nice when his Grandmothers read it to him passing along Yiddish words from one generation to the next.

This book is cute and appropriate for the tot and pre-school set. However, I question their choice of Yiddish words, especially since it's missing a few that they would be more likely to hear, like body parts ("kopf" for head, "tuches" for bottom, "punim" for face). There is no religious content to the book (which may be a conscious choice), so don't expect to read "Gut Shabbes" or "Gut Yuntif." The illustrations are sweet, but my son isn't yet (he's currently 20-months but already a book-lover) showing much interest in this particular book.

Rhyming couplets on each page introduce Yiddish words that even non-Jewish readers will be familiar with--who does not understand schmooze, nosh, schlep or klutz? The watercolor spreads are brightly attractive, simply because they deviate from non-standard colors. It's all about precious babies and adorable little kids--adults are shown only by a pair of helping arms. This makes a cute gift, and works as a nice addition to the board book section in a library.

Fun rhymes and illustrations make this a joy (or give us lots of naches?) to share with our little guy. We've been reading it to him since he was around 9 months old. He seems to like the frog that appears throughout the book. It's a cute way to touch upon a little bit of yiddish and fun to read. Why not give this to a little one to learn a little yiddish, nu?

What a delightful way to introduce some basic Yiddish terms to the next generation. My kids love it because it reinforces words already in use in our household. But this book could just as easily be an organic way to interject some Yiddish into daily life. The text rhymes in imaginative ways and the colourful illustrations are engaging without overwhelming. I think I found my new favourite new baby gift!

I got this for my cousin to read to her grandson, and she loved it! However, where's "schmutz"? That's an important word when it comes to kids!

I cannot say enough good things about this book. My baby smiles everytime I he sees it and I still enjoy reading it to him, even though we have read/heard it over thirty times. The pictures on each page are very cute and show a baby sleeping, playing, and doing fun activities. The corresponding yiddish words are appropriate and cute--kvetchy, nosh, shluff. I highly recommend buying this book both for your own child and as a gift for other children.
