There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I contacted the publisher and advised them of the problem. They expected me to give them the details about the mistakes free of charge. I would think that they should take it out of the royalties of the author, get the problems corrected, and meanwhile remove the book.
If you are just looking for something for your kids to play with it's probably a good choice, but if it's supposed to be used for teaching I would steer clear. I would have corrected a couple of things by hand, but this book is clearly of the lowest standard.
And for all those reviewers who complain that the book is too small, may I suggest they read the description next time before ordering? It states clearly in the product description what the dimensions are. My young children have never had a problem with these small books. As I said, I love them for their small size and portability! We have dozens of them!

To point out some examples:
* Cereal is translated with Mehlspeise. The translation is not completely correct (Mehlspeise is a meal made with flour, pancakes for example) and the word is not in use for young people. So really off in a book aimed at children.
* "Happy New Year" is translated as "Glückliches Neues Jahr" which a) is never said like that, we say "frohes neues Jahr" and also, "glücklich" means something slightly different than happy: in the sentence "I am happy" it does translate to glücklich, but translating "glückliches neues Jahr" back to English, it would have to mean something like "a new year with lots of good fortune" I suppose - I am not sure as it is never said.
* "Ich möchte ein Sandwich" can be found on one page (supposed to mean I want a sandwich). Correct would be "Ich möchte einen Sandwich". Pronounced it sounds almost the same, but when you write it down it should be grammatically correct. Also, while Sandwich can be understood by most Germans, the correct German word would be Butterbrot or simply Brot, and especially children would use this rather than the English word which is used in the narrow meaning of what we think of as English sandwich: white bread with a sandwich cream and lettuce cut into triangles.
So all in all a bit questionable.
