Nosh, Schlep, Schluff


Nosh, Schlep, Schluff: BabYiddish by Laurel Snyder, illustrated by Tiphanie Beeke

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 universal appeal unless you are feeling particularly kvetchy.  Appropriate for ages 2-3.

  1. My grandmother’s grandparents came to the U.S. from Germany. She used many words like “nosh.” I never realized that some of them could be Yiddish. Looks like a cute book!
