Ages 4-7

Mike’s grandma has recently come from Korea to live with his family. Mike’s parents run a food cart, selling hot dogs and pizza on a busy corner near the park. When new food carts start selling similar food on nearby corners, their once-thriving business begins to suffer. Then Mike hits on an idea to help both his parents, who are worrying about money, and his grandma, who misses her homeland. Instead of pizza and hot dogs, they can sell bulgogi, mandoo, bibim bap, chop chae and jijim: the Korean food that Grandma likes to cook! Grandma loves the idea, and so do their customers in this upbeat picture book.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
