Please welcome Aram Kim with a diverse books with food (and recipe) book list. You might remember her from last year’s #ReadYourWorld Book Jam 2017 series here. It’s actually how we met her here at Multicultural Children’s Book Day.
We became big fans of her work, and asked her to create our poster for this year’s event, and she kindly agreed! Aram Kim talks about her inspiration for the poster here.
Today, we are thrilled to introduce Aram Kim’s second picture book, No Kimchi For Me.
Yoomi hates stinky, spicy kimchi―the pickled cabbage condiment served at Korean meals. So her brothers call her a baby and refuse to play with her. Yoomi is determined to eat kimchi. She tries to disguise it by eating it on a cookie, on pizza, and in ice cream. But that doesn’t work. Then Grandma shows Yoomi how to make kimchi pancakes. This story about family, food, and a six-year-old “coming of age” has universal themes, and at the same time celebrates Korean culture. [picture book, ages 3 and up]
