Gr 2-4Each of these 20 folk sayings or adages is given in English and Korean, and includes a phonetic pronunciation or romanization. Some of the proverbs are clear and straightforward, such as Love must be given before it can be received. Others, such as Seven falls, eight rises and Licking the outside of a watermelon, are more obscure and difficult to understand. However, an informative appendix explains the proverbs in further detail and groups them into categories: Character, Cooperation and Accomplishment, and Eating. The flat, static watercolor illustrations occasionally add clarification and insight. The layout is clear, with attractive borders surrounding each proverb and illustration.
