What Will You Be, Sara Mee?

"Sara Mee is about to mark her first birthday -- a very special day in her Korean-American family. After she is dressed in the colorful silk hanbok her grandmother made for the occasion, family and friends gather to celebrate with food and presents. The highlight comes when they play the game toljabee, which predicts what Sara Mee will be when she grows up. The story is told by her older brother, Chong, who anxiously awaits the game. He is excited when he is allowed to participate by presenting the game pieces to his sister." -- School Library Journal

"Of particular interest to Korean American families, this festive story also introduces a different cultural birthday tradition to non-Koreans. An author’s note personalizes the story and explains a little more; a glossary of terms is appended, but there is no pronunciation guide." -- Booklist

"...readers interested in Korean culture will welcome the description of this unique tradition, especially since there is little else on the topic. " -- Kirkus Reviews
