    4. The Author and the illustrator are all westerners and they composed and edited this book so well as if they have lived in Korea a long time I observed the pictures of the book and felt surprised because every tool in the picture in this book is correct They must know about the Korean culture or must take a visit to Korea Every word or phrase looks like poetry and the pictures are fit to this poetry These two things emerge a beautiful scene and background of the story.

    5. The illustrations in this book were amazing They were so unique and at the same time they were so simple The simplicity of the pictures were very pretty and beautiful Although, I thought the pictures too pretty for the story The story was nice, but nothing special I only thought it was unique because it was about a little Korean girl This gives a cultural diversity book that gives a wider range of children to relate to.

    6. While written and illustrated from outside the culture, this Korean story is beautifully told and illustrated as a young girl tries to reunite with her mother by learning how to sew good enough for the king The Korean words will make an interesting working with word lessons The central character is driven to learn how to sew which is a good model for inquiry.

    7. The story felt a bit disjointed in the telling but it was a sweet reunion when little Ji su gets to see her Eomma again A tale of persistence and perseverance against the odds.
