Delightful story for reading alone or aloud!

A wonderful story of brotherly and fatherly love. Set in 1400s Korea, it was a delightful introduction to Korean history. The language was simple enough for a 3-4th graders to read on their own, but it also adroitly introduced here in there a higher level words.

Narration excellently captured the joy of the story.
