My First Book of Korean Words: An ABC Rhyming Book of Korean Language and Culture

Author(s): Kyubyong Park; Henry J. Amen; Aya Padron (Illustrator)

Korean Coursebooks

My First Book of Korean Words is a beautifully illustrated book that introduces young children to Korean language and culture through everyday words.

The words profiled in this book are all commonly used in the Korean language and are both informative and fun for English-speaking children to learn. The goals of My First Book of Korean Words are multiple: to familiarize children with the sounds and structure of Korean speech, to introduce core elements of Korean culture, to illustrate the ways in which languages differ in their treatment of everyday sounds and to show how, through cultural importation, a single word can be shared between languages.

Both teachers and parents will welcome the book's cultural and linguistic notes, and appreciate how the book is organized in a familiar ABC structure. Each word is presented in Hangeul, as well as in its Romanized form.

With the help of this book, we hope more children (and adults) will soon be a part of the nearly 80 million people worldwide that speak Korean
