Bee-Bim Bop Fun!

Would you ever think of going to the picture book section for a recipe? Well, no. But the picture book section is full of surprises.
Bee-Bim Bop by Linda Sue Park with illustrations by Ho Baek Lee is a lively story about a child and parent cooking the the traditional Korean dish of the title.
The recipe for Ms. Park's family version is included in the back of the book. The step-by-step directions are divided into tasks that kids can do, followed by the those that need to be done by an adult. What fun in the kitchen for a parent and child!
Linda Sue Park won the 2002 Newbery Medal for her book A Single Shard. She will be coming to the Library for National Children's Book Week in November.


Firekeeper's Son is also a good book. Mmm...bee-bim bop....I'm getting hungry.

Shhh! Don't tell but the Bee-bim-Bop blogger used the recipes from the book and prepared a fabulous Oscar night feast.

I know a certain youth librarian who can't say no to Bee-bim-Bop.. ^_^

I highly reccomend the bee-bim-bop at Eastern Accents on S. Fourth; its some of the best in the city. While technically an Asian Bakery, they serve up some great lunch specials, too.
