5.0 out of 5 starsThey were both delighted because they want their child to learn all three
Reviewed in the United States on March 1, 2016
The graphics in this book are not particularly exciting, but the sentiment is. I bought this as a baby gift for a bilingual couple. Mom speaks English and Spanish and Dad speaks German, English, and Spanish. They were both delighted because they want their child to learn all three languages
Terrible layout, terrible writing, unimaginative story, cheap and bad quality print. One of "those books". Quick money maker for the printers, nothing a child would actually enjoy looking at or be read to.
Terrible. I was looking for some german books for my toddler to teach her my native language. This book would, at best, be appropriate for someone who just wants to learn a couple of words rather than to gain any sort of comprehension of the language. As a matter of fact, I was unable to find any "real" german children's books on Amazon. I have resorted to asking my relatives in Germany to send us books.
This book along with “ Meine Mama is die Beste” is stilted and pretty pathetic. The words do not flow, the syntax is bad and the stereotypes are offensive. The little girl does only “girly” things and is relegated to being a weakling and a Princess. It isn’t cute; rather it upholds cultural expectations from years ago. The little boy is active; the little girl is mainly passive. In “Meine Mama is die Beste” there is so much confusion, that nothing hangs together. I understand that the author might be trying to be culturally inclusive, but the intent fails miserably. Addressing the mother in the formal “thou” is ridiculous, and then there are the many grammar mistakes. I got these books as a present, so I can not return them since I do not have a receipt. I am a native German speaker, and I wish I could throw them away. Unfortunately, my 3 year old granddaughter likes them after I cleaned up all the mistakes.
