Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kasey Giard
In 2010, Seoul, the capital of South Korea, was named a World Design Capital for its use of architecture to improve city life. As a nation, South Korea has a long history of both tradition and innovation. This book explores the early history of the Korean Peninsula from the post-World War II division that created North and South Korea through present-day South Korea. Though the two countries exist separately, South Korea continues to hope for a unified Korea in the future. This book covers a broad range of topics from history, to cultural development, to information about some globally known South Koreans, including an Olympic gold medal winner and the secretary-general of the United Nations. The information is presented in a straightforward way and broken down into smaller articles by topic. Special interest sections relate information about South Korea’s youth to each topic about daily life in South Korea. Beautiful, full color illustrations depict places and people referenced in each section. A timeline and index provide additional information. The simple but abundant information makes this book an excellent resource for libraries and classrooms. Recommended. Reviewer: Kasey Giard; Ages 8 to 12.
