This is my new favorite children's book, in fact I read it to three boys ages 4,6 and 8 last night and they really enjoyed it -- particularly the Yiddish-speaking chicken and Spanish-speaking Parrots. These kids even knew that Brooklyn is in New York. I originally heard the book read on Weekend Edition Saturday by host Scott Simon and author Daniel Pinkwater. They had so much fun reading the book, that I knew I had to get it and share it with my friends (particularly those who have children).

I've already purchased five copies for holiday gifts and I may have to buy more. I'm only sorry that my Yiddish-speaking Grandparents aren't still with us, as they would have loved this book, too.
