This book packs in a lot of information about Korea. I felt that they covered a lot of ground. I would have liked a little more information about the dividing of the country during the cold war, but this is a children's book. I also wondered when K-Pop started because it wasn't mentioned in the music section. I enjoyed learning, but it left me wanting to know more. I guess that is a good thing. I am going to have to seek out more information.

Recommends it for: people moving to Korea
Since I'm in Korea, I figured I might as well learn something about the history and culture of Korea. I raided the children's non-fiction section for short, colorful books about the nation. This is a great book; it's not too long and has lots of interesting facts about the country: it's people, foods, religion, art, symbology, language and cultural influences from other countries, primarily China and Japan. I think this is an excellent book for parents and teachers to read with children.
