Product Description

Bee-bim bop (the name means "mix-mix rice") is a traditional Korean dish of rice topped, and then mixed, with meat and vegetables. In the bouncy rhyming text, a hungry child tells about helping her mother make bee-bim bop; shopping, preparing ingredients, setting the table, and sitting down with her family to enjoy a favorite meal. The energy and enthusiasm of the young narrator are conveyed in Ho Baek Lee's inventive, whimsical illustrations, which bring details drawn from his childhood in Korea to his depiction of a modern Korean American family. Even young readers who aren't familiar with the dish will recognize the pride that comes from helping Mama, the fun of mixing ingredients together in a bowl, and the pleasure of sharing delicious food. Includes author's own recipe. For ages 4-7.
