Strong Reviews just in for Annie Bowler's latest book, All About Korea:

Here's what Jeong-Gwan Lee, Consul General of the Republic of Korea in San Francisco, had to say:

Explaining a country's culture is a difficult  and rewarding task, and without a doubt, it requires contemplation and hard work. After reading All About Korea, I was certain that it was written by a Korean or Korean-American author. I was pleasantly surprised to see that a non-Korean had written such a thorough, informative yet succinct introduction about Korean culture. The book is accurate and covers a lot of ground, and the author manages to get past the superficial level of cultural understanding.

Thoughts from

All About Korea is a rich trove of activities and information about Korea, compiled by author Ann Martin Bowler. In fifteen chapters, appealingly illustrated by Soosoonam Barg, Bowler presents history, games, folktales, some basic Korean language, songs, recipes, and information about holidays, arts and crafts, architecture, and values. In addition to use in the classroom, the many Korean-American parents and adoptive parents of Korean-born children will be gratified and assisted by Bowler and Barg's book.
