Will she be an artist A cook A writerSara Mee is turning one and her family and friends gather for her tol or first birthday celebration. I would use this book to help incorporate non traditional methods and ideas for creative birthday resources This book will be a good one to incorporate into my birthday themed section The main concept behind the story What Will You Be Sara Mee is a story of a Korean girl who is celebrating her first birthday with a special Korean tradition called the tol The tol is an ancient custom that was preformed to predict the child’s future The main character’s of the story are Sara Mee and her other brother Chong The story is narrated through Chong he explains his curiosity of what his sister will become after presented with the prophecy game toljabeeThis story would be a great story to read to my class for literacy purposes because it’s a wonderful way to introduce different multicultural customs to the students and to teach what traditional customs of a culture or a family means The students could become interactive with the text by sharing and cultural customs or traditions that the students may celebrate with their families or cultural groups The kids could write a story about the customs they practice or about a new custom that they may like to exploreThe author Kate Aver Avraham has a very special relationship to this story and tradition because she actually has an adopted Korean daughter She wrote this book to help inform the public about the customs and the cultural relevance of the tol but also to encourage people to explore and share the first birthday customs that exist in many other cultures around the world The illustrator used very vibrant colors and very traditional Korean clothing was represented in the story with Sara Mee’s special hanbok Korean ceremonial costume There are also many pictures that show the different cultural instruments that are played during this ceremony which I found very beneficial This is such a good representation of the writer taking a thoughtful stance on wanting to share multicultural traditions and diversity This book provides many great examples of the Korean customs Korean language and family traditions
