Once upon a time there lived a proud and arrogant peahen and no less a proud redhead rooster. The peahen wore a necklace and dreamed of marrying a king, and the rooster tousled his beautiful comb and longed to marry the peahen and reign the world. But the tale would not be so interesting if all the wishes of the characters came true at once. It would not be so interesting even if the wishes were not disturbed by a witch – a one-eyed old woman with a leprous face. A poem for children “Gaidys raudonskiauterys” (Der Galaganer hon / דער גאלאגאנער האן) was published in 1922.

“Slinktys” Publishing house, in cooperation with Lithuanian Jewish (Litvak) Community and YIVO Institute, is starting to publish books for children. The series of books were written almost 100 years ago and now were translated from Yiddish into Lithuanian language. The books provide authentic illustrations and were sound recorded by actor Eimantas Bareikis (sound director and composer – Simon Gimelstein), and anyone with a QR app on their mobile device are able to listen to them.
