Product description

"Het boek van Ot en Sien

Er was eens een kleine jongen. hij heette Ot. En een klein meisje. haar naam was Sien. Ot en Sien. Jullie vader en moeder kennen die twee kinderen goed. Opa en oma weten ook vast nog veel van ze. En straks zullen jullie dit ook doen. Want dit boek vertelt van hen. Ot en Sien wonen naast elkaar. Het zijn buurkinderen. "Buurvrouw", zegt Sien tegen Ots moeder. Ja, Ot en Sien zeggen de dingen soms anders dan jullie nu doen. Ze zien er ook anders uit. Kijk maar naar de plaatjes. Misschien doen ze ook wel eens iets waar jullie nog nooit van hoorden. Dat is allemaal niet erg. Want Ot zal toch een vriendje van je worden. En Sien een vriendinnetje. Net als ze dat waren van jullie vader en moeder. En van opa en oma. "Grootva en grootmoe", zeggen Ot en Sien soms. Wat ze nog meer zeggen en doen? Dat kun je in dit boek lezen en op de plaatjes zien. Ga maar gauw beginnen!"

Which approximately translates as:

Grandpa and Grandpa also know a lot of them. And later you will too. Because this book tells of them. Ot and Sien live next to each other. They are neighbor children. "Neighbor woman" says Sien of Ot's mother. Yes, Ot and Sien say things differently from how you would say them now. They also look different. Just look at the pictures. Perhaps they sometimes do something you've never heard of. That's not bad at all. Because Ot will be a boy who is your friend. And Sien a girl friend. Just as though they were your father and mothers' children. And grandchildren of grandpa and grandma. "Grootva en grootmoe", say Ot and Sien sometimes. What else do they say and do? You can read that in this book and see the pictures. Just get started!"

With original drawings by Jetses, C.
