An adventure for kids!

Reviews

All About Korea is a rich trove of activities and information about Korea, compiled by author Ann Martin Bowler. In fifteen chapters, appealingly illustrated by Soosoonam Barg, Bowler presents history, games, folktales, some basic Korean language, songs, recipes, and information about holidays, arts and crafts, architecture, and values. In addition to use in the classroom, the many Korean-American parents and adoptive parents of Korean-born children will be gratified and assisted by Bowler and Barg's book in instilling in their bicultural children a sense of pride and respect for the Korean people and their country.

All About Korea is a delightful children's book written by Ann Martin Bowler, an adoptive parent of two children from Korea. A wonderful resource for families who have adopted from Korea, the book chalk full of interesting facts about Seoul also serves as a useful and fun guide for anyone interested in Korean history and culture. Your child will love the fun stories, crafts and activities, as well as the vibrant and colorful pictures beautifully illustrated by Soosoonam Barg, an artist and teacher from Seoul. Bowler also provides delicious recipes used in the rich Korean culture! We highly recommend All About Korea to our Korea families and their children. We encourage you to read the book with your child and, together, learn about Korea and your child's heritage! Angie Wharfield Ford, Director of Post Adoption Services, Holt International
