Ok, ok, so these are not garbage books, but rather books about garbage. But I had to start with something. Going along with M's new passion for all things garbage related, we've been reading lots and lots of books about it.
this video. The book itself was very simple to translate since it was beginner readers' books - big letters, present tense only, short sentences, etc.
Plus we came up with a game based on the book. We would get a basket of our Russian magnetic letters and one of M's toy garbage trucks. We then would take turns pulling letters out of the basket and trying to come up with disgusting garbage that starts with that letter. If we succeeded, the truck got to "eat" the letter. It was fun and M actually asked to play it again after a while.
We read it five times in a row and then read it a few times each day for days! M quotes whole passages from this book (and he simply refuses to memorize any kind of poetry). This is the first book that he memorized so well, that I found him one morning sitting by himself, flipping through the pages and "reading" pretty close to the original text.
