Description from Richard Michelson:

Aaron loves his grandfather very much, even if he is a little bit embarrassed by Zayde’s funny accent and the way he waves his arms when he talks. Aaron longs to read his grandfather's treasured books, but when he asks to learn Yiddish, the language Zayde spoke in the Old Country, Zayde refuses. In America, Aaron is told, Jews should speak and read English just like everyone else.

As the years pass, Zayde grows old, and Aaron grows up. It isn't until Zayde himself abandons his heritage that they both realize the importance of preserving their family history and culture. Aaron and Zayde's bond grows even deeper as they realize you're never too young-or too old-for Yiddish.

An author's note about the Yiddish language as well as a glossary and pronunciation guide of Yiddish terms are included.

 Listen to Leonard Nimoy's reading of the book.
