Oh my goodness, I have so much to say about our trip across Austria, Germany and Switzerland! But I want to start with books. Here's where we shopped in Vienna, Austria (where they also speak German):
...and here is the children's bookshelf:
I chose to carry home UNSER ZOO because it has pictures, which makes it much easier to translate. So far I've learned that a giraffe is a giraffe, a tiger is a tiger, a panda is a panda. But an hippo is a flusspferd, a penguine is a pinguine, and a leopard is a gepard.
See? Picture books are awesome. :)
The Eric Carle book is going to take me a bit more time -- unless I cave and buy the English version!
Other highlights of my European adventure:
|Neuschwanstein Castle (Germany), after which Walt Disney |
modeled Cinderella's castle in Orlando!
|fruit! chocolate! bread! art! and lots of dyed Easter eggs!|
