Nosh, Schlep, Schluff: Babyiddish

4.06  ·  Rating Details ·  49 Ratings  ·  11 Reviews
Learning and using Yiddish is fun for the whole family, from the youngest mamaleh to the oldest bubbe and zaideh. As the mother tongue of millions of Jewish immigrants, Yiddish has made its way into everyday English. The sprightly text follows a toddler through a busy day and is peppered from beginning to end with Yiddish words.

Sweet board-book intro to Yiddish. I haven't found many Jewish board books I can recommend, and this one is definitely worth checking out. Twelve pages of cuteness.

Follow a busy toddler through his day and read rhymes that are sprinkled with Yiddish. From preschool to the playground and back home again, there is plenty to keep a little boy and his toy frog busy. Along the way, children and adults will realize how much of what they say is Yiddish. Snyder’s rhymes are clever and bouncy, perfect for a board book for the youngest listeners. Beeke’s illustrations are bright colored and always focused on the child.

This little gem of a board book will have unive

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.
Brilliant. A board book that amused the hell out of me as an adult, and even drew the amused interest of the Spouse. The rhymes are good, funny, and combined with the pictures define the terms well. Useful for anyone who doesn't know much Yiddish. Truly, I am charmed, and I want someone I know to have a baby, just so I can give it to them.

Library copy.

I've a couple of board-book-aged boys next door and so when those sorts of books come my way I do take a quick look to see if they'd be up their alley. This one, I discovered, is completely and utterly adorable. I have to admit that I associate Yiddish with older folk, but this book made me see that it is absolutely perfect for little ones too.

(and now you've memorized approximately half the book! But the pictures are delicious.)

I didn't like this book because I prefer to read my kids books with words that make sense in the sentences they are in. It didn't even keep my 1 & 3 year olds attention.
