Book Review – Peach Heaven

Peach Heaven by Yangsook Choi

This is a book about a little girl in Puchon, South Korea who loves peaches. After a huge storm, it looks as if it’s raining peaches and it’s a dream come true. However, the little girl realizes that her peaches mean that the farmers have lost their crop. The little girl organizes her friends and they gather the peaches and take them back to the farmers.

For those of us who do not live in Korea, it is a small glimpse of a real event in Korean history and a good teaching story (no matter what country you are from). I enjoyed it and my son listened intently. However, I would suggest the book for children in Kindergarten or older. The pictures are wonderful.
