Explore Korea with Picture Books

Learn more about the fascinating history and culture of Korea — an ancient country whose history stretches back more than 2,000 years. Since 1945, it has been divided into two sovereign states: North Korea and South Korea. In these picture books, you’ll learn facts about Korea from A to Z, discover traditional Korean tales (some of them spun into modern stories), and dip into Korean cooking and the delights of “sijo” poetry. You can also explore immigrant stories from the perspective of children, and find out what it’s like to live between two cultures (American and Korean).
