"This book introduces the reader to the Korean alphabet and Korean words. Each page features colorful illustrations and Korean writing." --Audrey, age 7, City Book Review
"With just one book, your kids will be exposed to Korean culture and the Korean alphabet in a rhyming beautifully illustrated picture book." blog
"Explore gimchi or kimchi, Taekwondo, and won (currency of Korea) as you learn all about Korea." --Growing Book by Book blog
"Alphabet books that reinforce the beauty and importance of leaning about many languages and cultures." --Booklist
"Perfect for early language introduction, this hardcover book used the English alphabet to introduce Korean words to youngsters. The hangul writing is included for each word so if you have been learning your Korean letters, you can practice reading the words!" blog
"Open up any one of these books and you'll see beautiful illustrations depicting the target culture, a fun and memorable rhyme, the foreign vocab in Roman letters, as well as in their native script." --Castle View Academy blog
"These books are really sweetly illustrated and focus on teaching the basic sounds and written characters of the chosen language." --A Mum Reviews blog
"The illustrations by Aya Padron are well done and display lovely children at play. Many benefits accrue to young children who are exposed to a second language. There are cognitive benefits, such as greater neural activity and denser tissue in the brain area related to memory, attention, and language. These benefits appear to be long term. In addition, books such as this one also introduce culture." --Seattle Book Review
