Description

 

See below for English description.

La petite soeur d'André n'est qu'un tout petit bébé, mais oh là là! ce qu'elle pleure fort! Une berceuse? Un biberon de lait? Un air d'harmonica? Rien n'y fait. Personne n'arrive à la consoler, sauf André… qui la fait rire avec ses drôles de mots magiques!

 

Daniel's family has a little problem. Daniel's baby sister, Louise, just won't stop crying. Everyone in the family tries to soothe her. Her mother sings a lullaby; her father rocks her in his arms; Grandma gives her a bottle; Grandpa plays a tune on his harmonica. But nothing works! Little Louise just goes on crying until big brother Daniel appears on the scene and tells her, "Oonga Boonga." Like magic, Louise's tears stop. But the funny thing is, these whimsical words don't work when the grown-ups say them. Daniel has the magic touch with his little sister!

Original title:Oonga Boonga
