I liked this book. -Cole, Age 7, City Book Review Children and animals drawn in a palette of tropical colors cavort through Wright's charismatic collection of 14 traditional Korean songs and nursery rhymes... -Publishers Weekly 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
