Bee-Bim Bop! Kindle Edition
Bee-bim bop (the name translates as “mix-mix rice”) is a traditional Korean dish of rice topped, and then mixed, with meat and vegetables. In bouncy rhyming text, a hungry child tells about helping her mother make bee-bim bop: shopping, preparing ingredients, setting the table, and finally sitting down with her family to enjoy a favorite meal. The energy and enthusiasm of the young narrator are conveyed in the whimsical illustrations, which bring details from the artist’s 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.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
There is a religious aspect in the book - they are shown to pray over their dinner and say amen at the end, but no depth of the religion is presented.
BTW out of all the recipes that are in books, this is ONLY one I will actually cook and eat. Our family is on a strict gluten free diet so Asian food is really the best option for us. The recipe is at the back of the book for Bee-bim Bop.
I also have the author's book called Firekeeper's Son which deals with overcoming temptation to do what is right. Its for slightly older kids but we really enjoyed it.
This is definitely going to be an annual tradition I can share with my nephew for a long time.

Next time I will do a fine motor center for them to pick up things with chopsticks and even do a snack where they can eat with chopsticks!
I teach preschool!
Very fun, easy book!
I didn't feel the illustrations were that great. I was a bit disappointed when I received it. Wish there were more photos showing the interior pages.
Like others said, there is a religious aspect to it when they say their prayers before dinner. We are not a religious family so it was a bit awkward to be teaching my child that.
It's nice that there is a recipe in the back for those who need it.

It rhymes very well, and there's a nice, bouncy, lively tempo when reading it which is perfect for holding a young child's attention. I bought this for my 2 year old niece for Christmas, and I think she'll really enjoy it. The recipe for bibimbop in the back is a really nice touch, as well!
