BOOK REVIEW: Discovering German with Walt Disney

Guest Blogger: Nick Maglio

My wife spotted this at “The World’s Largest Garage Sale” at the Allentown Fairgrounds in Allentown, Pennsylvania recently for $3. It was published in 1992 by Harrap.

It contains 1000 German words illustrated!

It takes classic Disney comic strip illustrations, isolates just one panel, and identifies specific things in each image in both German and English.

As a bonus, it includes the complete strip the highlighted image is taken from, and presents it in German and English as well.

This has to be one of the most fun ways to learn a language ever devised! Having the comic strips included is a bonus indeed, making it feel like you’re not laboring to learn at all. So if your life-long dream has been to learn German, why not pick up your very own copy?

So being as our review is over, it’s time to say: Auf Wiedersehen!

    In 1993 I was 9 and given this book (as a non-English speaker). Thinking back I credit it with so much of my English knowledge. Of course I’ve learned much more in the years since, but it taught me a lot as a kid. A fantastic book!
