We're slowly making our way around the Eastern Hemisphere, and I've especially enjoyed supplementing Core 5 with picture books for the six-year-old. Here are the books we've found for this week's study of Korea:
The Green Frogs--a Korean Folktale, retold by Yumi Heo
The Firekeeper's Son, written by Linda Sue Park with illustrations by Julie Downing
Bee-bim Bop! written by Linda Sue Park with illustrations by Ho Baek Lee
Behind the Mask, by Yangsook Choi
The Name Jar, by Yangsook Choi
The Have a Good Day Cafe, by Frances Park and Ginger Park with illustrations by Katherine Potter
Count Your Way through Korea, by Jim Haskins with illustrations by Dennis Hockerman
In addition, the older two have read or are reading these books by Linda Sue Park:
A Single Shard
The Kite Fighters
When My Name Was Keoko
Jazz gives A Single Shard high marks, and is starting When My Name Was Keoko tomorrow. JaneG. admits that The Kite Fighters was a good story, even if it was about two boys. She's reading SeeSaw Girl now.
