    A New Language for the Babes

    The new book is Yiddish for Babies-A Language Primer for Your Little Pitsel written and illustrated by Janet Perr. And it is a hoot! It follows along the lines of Hip-Hop for Dogs and Yiddish for Dogs. A really cute lil book of darling babies teaching you fun yiddish words. In honor of this cute fun book I have to tell you about my own lil SHMENDRICK (a silly boy) of a grandbabe. Landon is just 18 months old now and is learning to talk. It seems his favorite phrase has become "What is it?" I am not sure how he became so curious but he is one cute bug asking about everything. I am one proud BUBBE (grandmother) of my SHAYNA MAIDEL (pretty girl) grandbabe. She is now 5 years old and is learning so many new COCKAMAMIE, MESHUGGA (both mean crazy) games. But she is one YIDDISHE KOP (smart person). See how well I am learning Yiddish for Babies!

    Well, ZAI GEZUNT (goodbye, be well) for now my good friends.
