About this item

Presents a parody of the original "Dick and Jane" primers, interjecting Yiddish expressions into the text for humorous effect.

Jane is in real estate.
Today is Saturday.
Jane has an open house.
She must schlep the Open House signs to the car.
See Jane schlep.
Schlep, Jane. Schlep.
Schlep, schlep, schlep.
In text that captures the unque rhythms of the original Dick and Jane readers, and in 35 all-new illustrations, a story unfolds in which Dick and Jane--hero and heroine of the classic books for children that generations of Americans have used when learning to read--manage to express shades of feeling and nuances of meaning that ordinary English just can't deliver. How? By speaking Yiddish, employing terms that convey an attitude--part plucky self-assertion, part ironic fatalism. When Dick schmoozes, when Jane kvetches, when their children fress noodles at a Chinese restaurant, the clash of cultures produces genuine hilarity.

Its a Parody

Customer review by Mijal

4.0 stars 2/9/2010 by Mijal
by Mijal

If you read the front of the book it explains exactly what the book is, A Parody. This is clearly stated and those who may be upset that the content may not be appropriate for beginning readers need to take a clue from the cover and perhaps read or browse through books before giving them to their children. As far as the book's content is concerned I found it hilarious and an excellent parody of the beloved children's series.

I would think a book about Dick and Jane would be for children. But NO!!!!! This book has men cheating on their wifes and Men kissing men and women Smoking!!! I'm sorry but this book should have never been put on the market! And we wonder why are children are doing things we wish they wouldn't. Well why teach them this Stuff at a young age? It just shows how sick this world is!!!!!! THIS IS NOT A CHILD'S BOOK :(
