About the Book

A Korean American girl celebrates food and family in this cheerful book about cooking a special meal by Newbery Medalist Linda Sue Park.

In bouncy rhyming text, an excited and hungry child tells about helping her mother make bee-bim bop: shopping, preparing ingredients, setting the table, and finally sitting down with her family to enjoy a favorite meal.

The energy and enthusiasm of the young narrator are conveyed in the whimsical illustrations, which bring details from the artist’s childhood in Korea to his depiction of a modern Korean American family.

Critical Praise

"Bouncy-rhyming . . . vivacity and charm . . . from a child's-eye point of view."

Kirkus Reviews

"Park captures the exciting rush of dinnertime preparations...Lee's watercolors extend the flurry of activity, humor, and delight." — Booklist

"Expressive, child's-eye watercolors get in on all the activity...in this celebration of a well-loved cultural dish." — Horn Book Magazine
