Yiddish Wisdom for Parents: Yiddishe Khokhme Far Eltern

Kristina Swarner

Publisher: Chronicle Books

This beautifully illustrated volume collects more than 100 folk sayings from the Old Country — in Yiddish and English — celebrating the bond between parent and child. An intimate treasury of enduring advice and observation, Yiddish Wisdom for Parents encompasses the joys, and trials, of raising and loving children in proverbs poignant (A child’s wisdom is also wisdom/A kind’s khokhme iz oykhet khokhme), practical (First learn, then teach/Ersht lern zikh, un dan lernen ondere), and whimsical (Goofy goose, goofy goslings/Fardreyte gandz, fardreyte gendzl). With charming watercolors by Kristina Swarner illuminating the proverbs, this warm and witty book is the perfect gift for Passover, showers, Chanukah, or any special occasion.
