Korean Words #Giveaway


We like to mix it up here at kimchi MOM. If you remember, I had a Thursday Three series where I shared three things that interested me that week. Well, I miss doing those posts and I wanted to bring something like that back to the blog. Just a post every now and again where I shoot the breeze and maybe give away some good stuff.

This week I am giving away a children’s book titled “My First Book of Korean Words – An ABC Rhyming Book”. Published by Tuttle Publishing, it’s a cute book that illustrates some basic Korean words. It’s not a formal language learning book, per se, but it introduces the Korean language to kids where English is their first language. The words that are reviewed are associated with objects and activities that most kids are familiar with in English. For example, nolda (playing) and hanbok (Korean traditional clothes). The prose includes the Korean words or hangul that accompanies the anglicized version of the words. And it’s all accompanied by wonderful, dreamy illustrations. This book has been in heavy rotation in our bedtime reading line-up.

Tuttle Publishing has been generous enough to giveaway a copy of this book to one lucky reader. You will not regret having this in your child’s library and they will love you for it. Enter below for a chance to win!

The Tuttle Publishing Company was established in 1948 in Rutland, Vermont, and Tokyo, Japan, and is today regarded as a premier publisher and seller of books rooted in Asian culture, language, and history. You can “like” them on Facebook, and follow them on Twitter and Pinterest.

    My kids used to learn Korean from their Korean grandmohter, but since she passed away, they don’t get that much Korean language exposure. This book would be great!

    • kimchi_mom

      We try to visit with the grandparents as much as possible to get their Korean fix! But I find my parents and in-laws end up falling back on English many times!

  • Leah Wright

    My 1 year old granddaughter is learning English from her mother and Spanish from her father. I would love to introduce a third language, her great-grandmother’s Korean and a language my husband can no longer speak.

    • kimchi_mom

      That’s great! Korean is the first language I learned. I understand a lot of Korean, but I do not speak it at all now. :-(

  • Tina Cho

    I’m so happy to discover your blog. I need more Korean recipes! And this book giveaway is perfect.

    • kimchi_mom

      So glad you stopped by! Enjoy your stay!

  • Ruby Willis

    My mom and grandmother primarily speak Korean, so they learn a little when they get the chance to visit. My mom also sent some dvd’s of Korean kids shows that they watch. Watching the shows with the kids has also helped me brush up on my Korean.

    • kimchi_mom

      I need some brushing up also! I can understand a lot of Korean, but I haven’t spoken Korean since I was last in Korea for a language summer program…and that was a long time ago!

  • Jennifer Gideon

    We have a few books that offer the words in both English and another language, One of our more interesting books have English and Georgian. We lived abroad for 2 1/2 years, so I thought it would be good to have since he was born there.

    • kimchi_mom

      That’s great! Are you Georgian also?

      • Stacey Roberson

        No. We lived in Georgia for 2 years as my husband was working for a government contractor. We met some great people and did a lot of traveling in Europe. It was exciting!

    I would love to have this for my grandson, who is Korean – His other grandmother was born and raised in South Korea. We all want Andy to be bi-lingual and this book would really help Le teach him the language better!

    My mother in law is from Korea and speaks Korean to our son when he stays with her one day a week.

  • Julie

    We like to use books!

  • Kat

    We expose her to multi-lingual books lol

  • Krista Teigen

    My toddlers are learning basic Spanish at daycare but I would love to expose them more to the Korean culture since they are half-Korean! This book would be a wonderful resource!

  • Alicia Randón

    We expose to other languages through conversing with family and friends mostly. I also watch a lot of foreign movies and encourage my children to watch with me.
