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'schildhood 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.

Such a fun storytime book! I love the rhythm and rhyme. It's such a great family story that also happens to be Korean-American.

It's a fun story book to read with the kids, the pictures are cute. The Bee-bim bap recipe in the book is really good too. A good way to introduce the kids to a colorful Korean dish.

It's sing-songy. It's filled with rich illustrations of a family cooking and setting down to dinner. It gives me an opportunity to talk about cooking, vegetables in every meal, and the fun smells and textures in the kitchen. And, it ends with a recipe! What's not to like? I would love to see a series of these... each on a dish from the author's childhood.
