A charming collection of fourteen well-loved rhymes, Korean Nursery Rhymes is the perfect introduction to Korean language and culture for young readers.

Presented in both English and Korean, this multicultural children's book also includes an audio CD with recordings of kids singing in both languages — songs so lively and sweet, you'll soon find yourself singing along! Many accompany everyday play activities like jum rope and hand clap games. Others speak to a child's view of nature, and a love of home.

  • And more!

For preschoolers and beyond, this book will be a joy to the mind, the eye, the ear and the heart.
