Yoomi loves Grandma’s cooking–except for stinky, spicy kimchi, the pickled cabbage condiment served at Korean meals. You can’t eat it because you’re a baby, her brothers tease. And they don’t play with babies. Determined to prove she’s not a baby, Yoomi tries to find a way to make kimchi taste better–but not even ice cream can help. Luckily, Grandma has a good idea, and soon everyone has a new food to enjoy. Celebrating family, food, and growing up, this story about a Korean-American family will appeal to picky eaters and budding foodies alike. Aram Kim’s lively art is filled with expressive characters and meticulous details–and of course, mouth-watering illustrations of traditional Korean dishes and ingredients. Backmatter includes information about kimchi and how it’s made, and best of all, a recipe for Grandma’s kimchi pancakes to try yourself! For more about Yoomi and her family, don’t miss Let’s Go to Taekwondo! by Aram Kim. A Junior Library Guild Selection!
