  1. Sheila, did you forget to change your URL? I guessing you didn’t mean for it to be “new stack template”.

    Thanks for the reminder to get The Chosen. I’m going to try and join the book club for March.

    • Nope, didn’t forget to change it.

      But I did forget to click “ok” to actually save the changes. This is what happens when I do not have posts written ahead and am finishing them at midnight.

      And I know you aren’t supposed to do it after something publishes, but I’m totally changing the permalink to the post anyway. So thanks for the heads-up that my change didn’t actually get changed.

  2. We’re covering Korea now and have really enjoyed Linda Sue Park’s books–your list included two we hadn’t read yet though so thank you for the impetus to get those! Do you have other Korea-focused books on your list?

    When you get to it, and if your kids are adventurous about eating, there is a great Korean restaurant in the area. We just went recently as we were starting the Korean War in history. My family lived in Seoul when I was in middle school so I cook a few Korean things, but it’s nice to have all of our favorites in one spot! If you do go, I can give you a list of foods to definitely try!

    • I want to read the rest of Linda Sue Park’s books after reading (or re-reading, in the case of When My Name Was Keoko) these three, plus her picture book The Firekeeper’s Son.

      Stay tuned for a post tomorrow and then one (probably) next week about Korea books. Spoiler alert though, these are the non-picture books that will be mentioned. 😉

      My kids are decidedly NOT adventurous about eating, but I’ve been wanting to try that place (and I edited your comment slightly just because I’m paranoid about having such a precise location mentioned online). Someday I hope to get there without them, so I would like to know what I should definitely try. I’ll want to check with you too to be sure if I can actually eat their food anyway – I’ve recently developed an issue with soy so need to avoid it, and I have no idea if that’s something I need to worry about with Korean food or not.

  3. Totally going to try and link up this month! …if the newborn ever detaches from me :)

  4. I’m really excited to read the Korea books!

  5. These are all new to me. I’ll be anxious to see your reviews! Thanks for the link up!

  6. The Chosen – I think I started that about 20 years ago and never finished. Maybe it’s time to try again. Glad to be linking up with you this month!
