This enchanting, beautifully illustrated book featuring well-known Korean children's songs and rhymes makes a beautiful gift for kids and families who are interested in the Korean way of life. The highlighted verses, presented in both Korean hangeul script and English, are arranged in a clear side-by-side format that encourages successful and fun language learning.

  • "Monkey's Bottom"
  • "Twirling Round"
  • "Spring in My Hometown"

"Like singing in a round, there is a lot going on--it is fun and exciting and very busy. Each part deserves attention. First, the book can stand alone as a bilingual book of 14 children's nursery rhymes. Chirpy, simple and bright … Second, the language translation is repeated three times: first in Hanguel script, then in Romanized, phonetic Korean and finally in English. … Finally, the music CD allows readers to listen to correct pronunciation, with each song (played by guitar and sung by young children) performed in Korean and then English. The illustrations are two-dimensional and cartoony, with round bodies and smiling eyes. Both unusual and useful, for this ever-shrinking world." --Kirkus Reviews
