A charming collection of fourteen well-loved verses, Korean and English Nursery Rhymes is an excellent introduction to Korean language and culture for young children.

This enchanting, beautifully illustrated book featuring well-known Korean children's songs and rhymes makes a beautiful gift for kids and families who are interested in the Korean way of life. The highlighted verses, presented in both Korean hangeul script and English, are arranged in a clear side-by-side format that encourages successful and fun language learning.

Korean and English Nursery Rhymes also includes an audio CD with recordings of kids singing in both languages. These songs are so lively and sweet you'll soon find yourself singing right along! Many of the songs accompany everyday play activities like jumping rope and hand clapping games. Others speak to a child's simple view of nature and a deep love of home.

The fourteen favorite rhymes and songs featured include: "Little One" "Monkey's Bottom" "Twirling Round" "Spring in My Hometown" And more!
