Farmer McPeepers in Brazil

Proof that some books translate well. Farmer McPeepers and His Missing Milk Cows by Katy S. Duffield in Brazil.
It wasn’t an official translation, just my own off the cuff translation for the kids but boy howdy, did they ever have fun searching for the cows and Farmer’s glasses on each page. Just like my own kids when we read it in English. It was a blast.

Even Dash and Boy Spiderman were impressed. πŸ™‚

  1. Awwwwwww…. Betcha can’t see the tears in my eyes from there, but I guarantee you there are some big, drippy crocodile tears sliding down my cheeks. I am so honored that you chose Farmer to translate. I would have LOVED to hear you read it. Thanks so much for doing it and for posting the pic. Those darling faces (yours included!) melt my heart!

    Love you!!!


    1. Oh, I loved doing it. We had a blast. And it was so sweet that I could tell those kids loved the book just as much as when I’ve read it to kids in English. Their eyes were so wide and they were giggling. I had a great time.

      I almost fainted from the cuteness too. One little boy hugged me so hard I thought I would cry. It was so sweet. And he’s the big troublemaker too so it was especially sweet.

  2. Kristy,
    I love this photo! I wish I could have heard the translation too.
    What are they studying back there on that board? I recognize the word historia, but nothing else. And…are the children all in the same class? Looks like there might be quite an age range there.

    1. Yep, all in the same class, a 5K class which would include some four-turning-five year olds and some five-turning-six year olds.

      On the board they did a word find for their schedule for the day which included:
      Roda — circle time
      Historia — Story time
      Atividade — Activity
      Merenda — Snacktime
      Quintal — Literally “backyard” but it’s recess
      Saida — Go home

      There are of course other activities that the teacher intersperses through the day but that she didn’t include on the board.
