Editorial Reviews

Jabari Asim
…the charming Korean heroine of Hyun-Joo Bae's new book…has an adventure that begins on the first day of the year…The nameless young girl looks forward to celebrating the "first day for the beginning of everything" in a new outfit that her mother made especially for the occasion…While the reverence with which the girl greets the holiday is specifically Korean, her gladness and anticipation—and Bae's skillful rendering—are sure to have universal appeal.
—The Washington Post
Children's Literature - Ken Marantz
It is New Year's Day in Korea and an excited young girl is eagerly anticipating the chance to wear at last the beautiful new clothes her mother has made for her. She describes how she ties on her new red skirt, carefully arranges the flower designs in place on her new socks, and ties on her multicolored jacket. Then it is time to fix her hair in front of the mirror. Her father has left a gift of flowered shoes. A furry vest and winter hat will help keep her warm. When she is ready to begin her New Year, she is surprised to see there is new snow as well, a perfect setting for making calls to "wish everyone good luck in the New Year." The simple, brief text, in short lines set wide apart, reflects the voice of our charming young heroine. Final notes fill in the background of the holiday and the significance of the clothing, each part of which is detailed in the final illustration. The clarity of the prose is matched by the crisply drawn and painted images of the heroine and the traditional furniture around her. Several double-page scenes display handsome chests and shelves, but in the main scenes the visual story is told by the sequence of the dressing, her figure against the white page, her natural gestures, and her direct appeal.

    Excellent Book for Children to teach other traditions/clothing

    Our grandchildren love this book. We have read and reread the book many times. It is so colorful and engaging. At the back of the book, every "part" of the hanbok is identified and labeled with the correct Korean identification. The book, to me, is a learning tool for customs in another country.
