Will she be an artist? A cook? A writer?

Sara Mee is turning one, and her family and friends gather for her tol, or first-birthday celebration. Food and presents abound, but most exciting of all is the traditional Korean prophecy game, called the toljabee, which predicts what Sara Mee will be when she grows up.

A book for all cultures, WHAT WILL YOU BE, SARA MEE? celebrates siblings, community, and the blending of traditions.

Sara Mee is turning 2 years old. In the Korean tradition the child sits in front of a table with items that may decide her future profession. The narrator is the brother of Sara Mee and is very excited to be getting ready for her birthday party with family. Then he gets to see her pick her future profession. A really cute story. The narrator is very charming. I really like the tradition it speaks of. I think it would be really fun to have students pick out of a bag what they're future may be then do a writing activity on it. I'd really like to have it for my classroom!
