In Korean Folk Songs , music teacher Robert Choi shares 14 of Korea's best-loved classic children's songs--with musical scores and lyrics in both Korean and English.

Born and bred in Chicago, Choi's parents raised their son with a keen appreciation for their native Korean culture. The traditional melodies they taught him left a deep impression. Included in this collection are well-known children's songs such as "Splashing Around" and "Mountain Rabbit" that incorporate fun actions and gestures. Also, traditional standards that have been passed down from generation to generation, such as "Blue Birds" and "Arirang."

Each Korean children's song features a musical score with the lyrics in Korean script and romanized form and an English version of the lyrics. Historical and cultural notes are included, and for the children's songs, Choi describes the accompanying actions. An audio CD contains recordings of all the songs, along with tracks that allow you to sing along. Every page has beautiful full-color illustrations of traditional Korean scenes by the talented Korean artist SamEe Back.

Just as songs like "Home on the Range" or "Oh! Susanna" are part of traditional American culture, the songs in Korean Folk Songs are a valuable resource for anyone with interest in Korean culture, history and language.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "There's lots of fun to be had with this sing-along book and CD of traditional Korean folk songs. Each two-page spread includes an annotation that describes the content and cultural significance of the song, a musical score, and lyrics in Korean and English. Do the Actions sections provide directions for how to perform along with the music. Youngsters will giggle as they mime throwing stones in the river, pretend to wash herbs in the water, or find a partner and tickle his or her hands! Themes range from playful (Splashing Around/Pong dang pong dang) to patriotic (Arirang, the national anthem of South Korea) to serious (Thinking of Older Brother/Obba saenggak, which laments the disappearance of a boy during the Japanese occupation). Realistic watercolor illustrations mirror the content of the songs. Here's a delightful, culturally affirmative, and worthwhile library addition.--Chaudhri, Amina Copyright 2015 Booklist"
