Tomorrow is New Year’s Day: Seollal, a Korean Celebration of the Lunar New Year

Written by Aram Kim
Illustrated by Aram Kim
Published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux

Seollal, the Korean Lunar New Year, is Mina’s favorite day of the year.

Mina can’t wait to share the customs of Seollal with all of her friends at school. She will show her classmates her colorful hanbok, demonstrate how to do sebae, and then everyone will make tasty tteokguk in the cooking room. Yum! Her little brother may even join in on the fun… if he can find a way out of his bad mood.

In this joyful book about sharing age-old cultural celebrations with new friends, Aram Kim has created a must-have book for the New Year’s season. A glossary of Korean terms, with pronunciation guide, is included.
