Since lots of families have the tradition of reading a Christmas book each day of the holiday season, I thought I’d recommend one with a Korean twist.
Yoon and the Christmas Mitten by Helen Recorvits continues the story of Yoon, a Korean immigrant that began in My Name is Yoon. In the Christmas Mitten, Yoon learns about the traditions of the Christmas holiday while at school from her teacher and fellow students. As the holiday approaches, Yoon becomes more excited about the possibilities it holds. But her father won’t hear of the holiday. Finally a compromise is reached between the two and Yoon finds the holiday to be an enjoyable one, even if the celebration is somewhat unique.
We’ve read the book the last two years and love it. I hope your family enjoys it too.
