“Of particular interest to Korean American families, this festive story also introduces a different cultural birthday tradition to non-Koreans.” –Booklist

What Will You Be, Sara Mee?

Written by Kate Aver Avraham
Illustrated by Anne Sibley O'Brien
Published by Charlesbridge

Will she be an artist? A cook? A writer? Sara Mee is turning one, and her family and friends gather for her tol, or first-birthday celebration. Food and presents abound, but most exciting of all is the traditional Korean prophecy game, called the toljabee, which predicts what Sara Mee will be when she grows up. A book for all cultures, What Will You Be, Sara Mee? celebrates siblings, community, and the blending of traditions.
