Yiddish with George and Laura by Ellis Weiner

Yiddish with George and Laura

by Ellis Weiner

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
49 Min.


What do George and Laura Bush have in common with Dick and Jane? Well, both hail from prototypical WASP families. And, perhaps more to the point, both exhibit a natural resistance to moral complexity (i.e., reality).

That's the premise of this hilarious new primer-style book in which George, Laura, and the entire Bush family communicate with uncharacteristic expressiveness, conveying shades of feeling and nuances of meaning that plain old English can't deliver--by peppering their conversation with Yiddishisms. Like all good primers, Yiddish with George and Laura tells a simple story and, in the end, important life lessons are imparted.
