Enjoyed it. Learned a few words I didn't know and got a better idea of the definitions of some I did.

This is a hilarious Dick and Jane (1950'children's reading primer)satire. The setting is Dick and Jane in modern Jewish culture. Yiddish substitutes English vocabulary words in a comical way in keeping with the primer style. Glossary of Yiddish words is in the back also defined with laughable humor. This is a must read for those that remember the good old days with the Grandparents and Dick and Jane or those courageous enough to learn Yiddish.

I probably won't read this to my Kindergarten class. If I do, I will certainly stop before page 13.
