Congratulations to Marilyn N. for winning the 5 DVDs from NCircle Entertainment!

Disclosure: Daria Marmaluk-Hajioannou gave me a copy of this book free of charge. All opinions in my review are my own and I did not receive any other compensation. As in all my reviews I am providing links for your ease, but receive no compensation.

Today I get to share with you an amazing book for celebrating diversity!! The brand new book is called Beautiful Rainbow World created by Suzee Ramirez and Lynne Raspet to the words of Daria Marmaluk-Hajioannou's song Beautiful Rainbow World. Now I have posted about this amazing song before. Hazel and I spent some time doing activities to many of Daria's songs on her I Have a Dream CD, which I reviewed last year

I have such respect for the strong and hard working Mongolian people. To learn a bit more about Mongolia and their lifestyle check out my post over at Around the World in 12 Dishes blog on Season 3 - Mongolia.

Multicultural Monday: Korean Language Product Reviews


 Disclosure: Tuttle Publishing gave me a copy of these products free of charge. All opinions in my review are my own and I did not receive any other compensation. They also sent me a copy to giveaway! As in all my reviews I am providing links for your ease, but receive no compensation.


Today I am going to share with you two products to introduce children to the Korean Language and a little to the culture itself. The first item is a wonderful book called My First Book of Korean Words: An ABC Rhyming Book by Henry J. Amen IV and Kyubyong Park. I love this book (and the others similar to it from other countries like Japanese and Chinese which I have previously reviewed) because it is a wonderful introduction for young children to the language as well as to the country. For example we learn that Koreans often eat vegetables and rice for breakfast, and that they believe there is a rabbit in the moon like we say there is a man in the moon. This book has beautiful illustrations and have the word in Korean letters with the pronunciation and then the English. The words go along with the English alphabet and the book mentions which letters are not in the Korean language.
