diverse picture book (food, cooking; preschool ages 2 and up)
* Features diverse characters: This is a fun, action-packed book about cooking a family meal, which incidentally stars a Korean family (2 kids, mom and dad, and grandma) making a traditional Korean dish--mom does the cooking of the title dish with help from big sis. Includes recipe at the end as well as a note explaining more about the dish (including a photo of the author with her niece and nephew making rice).
* Would work for preschool storytime, and possibly older toddlers who like to sit through stories--the text rhymes and has a quick-moving rhythm to it that repeats and becomes familiar and comforting as the story progresses. There is also some very nice, descriptive vocabulary included, making it great for preschoolers. ( )

This is a great story for young readers. This story is about a young girl who loves to prepare the dish Bee-Bim Bop and we can see how it is important to her culture. This story is told through the use of many rhymes and it flows together very nice. The way it flowed added to the theme of the story and it was overall a fun and interesting read. I would use this book with younger students to introduce the idea of different cultures and to get them thinking about their own culture. ( )

This story would be great to introduce children to rhymes, food, and the Korean culture. The story follows a young Korean girl who expresses her excitement to prepare and eat Bee-Bim Bop which is a traditional Korean rice bowl. It's an easy read and great story depiction of cooking, following a sequential recipe and diverse cultures and I would use this book in the classroom to do that. ( )

This would be a wonderful book for primary students. This is a very energetic and fast paced book, it contains rhyming lines that create a detailed explanation of what goes into cooking the Korean dish, Bee-Bim-Bop. The little girl in the book prepares all the ingredients and cooks the dish with her grandmother then, she shares it with her family. This book was helpful because it was written in a way that makes the words flow really well and it portrays Asian culture in a very positive light. I would use this book during a unit on poetry in order to help kids learn about different kinds of food and present a fun rhyming book to them.

Primary; Realistic Fiction; This book is a fun story that could be sung as it rhymes. It walks through a young girl's excitement as her mother prepares Bee-bim Bop, her favorite Korean dish. She helps her mom make it and then the family enjoys it together. In the back, there is a recipe designed for students to do themselves or with an adult. This is a great book to read while studying cultural traditions or for a classroom library. ( )
