Reading in Another Language

Recently, I joined a call where one of my grandchildren chose a couple of book for her mother to read: they were children’s books written in French and German. I shouldn’t have been surprised because my daughter studied multiple languages in university. The thing is, the kids lapped up the stories, despite not being able to understand the languages. That made me wonder what would happen if we listened to a few stories together, here. One of Llewellyn’s choices was Der Strewwelpeter, by Heinrich Hoffman. So, that’s what we’ll be hearing. I’ll also include an English translation, so it’s not all babble.
