29 May 2012 (תירס חם, or Warm Corn)

May 29, 2012

I was given some fresh picked corn at work to take home today, and while we were on the subject my boss told me about a famous Israeli children’s book called “תירס חם” (Teeras Hum=Warm Corn).

From what I understood, a man is giving out teeras hum to children and every time a child receives one a chant follows: Bim bum bum, teeras hum, teeras hum, bim bum bum.

I know what I’ll be chanting while I eat corn for dinner today!

今日仕事で採りたてのとうもろこしを少しわけてもらったのですが、
その際上司がイスラエルの有名な児童書
תירס חם」(ティラス ハム=温かいとうもろこし)のことを教えてくれました。

私の理解があっていればですが、この本はあるおじさんが子供達に
茹でたとうもろこしを配っていて、違う子供に一つとうもろこしをあげるたびに
「ビム、バム、バム、ティラス ハム、ティラス ハム、ビム、バム、バム」
と歌を歌うみたいです。

今夜とうもろこしを食べる時に歌ってみようかな?

Much love,
Kaori
