"...a great bilingual reader for beginners to mid-intermediate
learners [...] For those without a CD player, Tuttle also offers
downloadable audio files from their website. This is so important,
because most laptops don't come with the CD drive anymore. Always
love the little touches like this-shows that the author /
publishing house understands the readers' needs."

"...comes with an MP3 collection that is an absolute joy to listen to. The reader speaks in a very clear voice and articulates words clearly-even on the higher-level stories." - Mezzofanti Guild
"I'd recommend [this book] to anyone interested in learning more about the Korean culture while still practicing some Korean." -Natalia Garza
