In the above photo, my son takes on the role of Uncle Ede from head to tome in Bertolt Brecht's Onkel Ede Hat Einen Schnurrbart.
A book of twelve Kinderlieder, or children's songs, the titular piece translates roughly as such:
Uncle Ede Has a Moustache
Uncle Ede has a moustache
The moustache has five hairs.
And so that he doesn't lose any of them
Each one has a name.
They're named Fritz and Otto
And Max and Karl and Paul.
Max is somewhat sickly
And Fritz is somewhat lazy.
What are your must-have moustache picture books? Add them in the comments section if you feel so moved. Thanks!
