Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanne Pettenati
Learning a language can be fun, especially with the well-designed approach embodied in this book. Each visually appealing page spread has a topic heading; such as toys, clothes, food, garden, and family, among others. Colorful backdrops feature stand out frames with an English word, followed by its Korean language characters and a pronunciation of those symbols. Of course, children unfamiliar with the Korean language (Hangul) would not know how to pronounce the characters alone. But the pronunciation guides are straightforward and simple. Young children may be surprised to know that the words sandwich, orange, and computer have similar pronunciations in both languages. Children with basic reading skills will enjoy trying out the pronunciations on their own. The child friendly format includes a front page with directions on how to use the dictionary. Learning a language may be even more enticing when siblings and friends read the text together. This title, which also contains tables of numbers and useful phrases, as well as places to go for additional information, is one in the publisher's "Bilingual Picture Dictionaries" series.
