Now you get cassettes or sometimes CDs to play in your car since no one reads anymore.
For those who are interested in the modern field of books on tape I give you this section.

Too Young for Yiddish
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.
