No Kimchi for Me!

Author(s): Aram Kim

Picture Books

Yoomi loves Grandma's cooking-except for stinky, spicy kimchi, the pickled cabbage condiment served at Korean meals.

"You can't eat it because you're a baby," her brothers tease. And they don't play with babies. Determined to prove she's not a baby, Yoomi tries to find a way to make kimchi taste better-but not even ice cream can help. Luckily, Grandma has a good idea, and soon everyone has a new food to enjoy.

Celebrating family, food, and growing up, this story about a Korean-American family will appeal to picky eaters and budding foodies alike. Aram Kim's lively art is filled with expressive characters and meticulous details-and of course, mouth-watering illustrations of traditional Korean dishes and ingredients.

Backmatter includes information about kimchi and how it's made, and best of all, a recipe for Grandma's kimchi pancakes to try yourself!
