Dos iz George.
Er hot a mol gevoynt in Afrike.
Er iz geven a voyl malpele
Un tomid zeyer a naygeriker.
Thus begins the classic children’s book of the curious monkey and the man with a yellow hat, as translated into Yiddish by Dr. Zackary Sholem Berger.
With its text written in both alef-bais and transliteration, and an alphabet chart to help those not yet proficient, George der Naygeriker is the perfect book for anyone just a bissel naygerik — a little curious — about Yiddish.
Nu? What are you waiting for?
