May 07, Doreen rated it really liked it. So delightful! Full review tk at TheFrumiousConsortium. Yoomi is looking forward to Sunday Funday but everything seems to go wrong from the very moment she wakes up. No cartoons, no favorite breakfast, no favorite shirt to wear -- and that's even before she leaves the house! Surely, things will get better once she arrives in Koreatown with her dad for a visit to the shops and to grandma Teaching the value of perseverance and flexibility, Sunday Funday In Koreatown embroiders on its universal themes with details that lovingly highlight the culture of the Korean diaspora in a way that embraces both readers already familiar with the culture or otherwise.
I really enjoyed following along with Yoomi's day and especially appreciated the recipe for kimbap at the end! As they're both cat people -- in more senses than one, as my youngest especially sometimes behaves more like a sentient feline than a semi-feral child -- their sense of identification with Yoomi and the rest of her cat family was high. This book was perfect for reading aloud and captured their attention from start to finish.
My ten year-old read this on his own, ofc, and rated it quite highly. Yes, this is a very awkward position to type from. I love how Aram Kim uses this series to casually incorporate Korean American culture into contemporary children's literature, showing how to do it in a way that's wildly entertaining while being respectful both to her people and to young readers.
It's another great book for Asian American Pacific Islander heritage month, and one I'm so pleased to have on my family's shelves.

Featuring colorful illustrations created with pencil and then digitally colored, this picture book is drenched in culture. As is the case for most individuals, Yoomi loves her Sunday rituals. But on this particular Sunday, nothing goes as she has planned.
Her favorite television program is cancelled, there isn't enough rice for her favorite dish, and her favorite shirt is stained. Even her weekly trip to Koreatown is spoiled because the book she wants to check out from This one is a 3. Even her weekly trip to Koreatown is spoiled because the book she wants to check out from the library isn't available and the grocery store runs out of the special food she wants.
To make matters even worse, Grandma isn't home when they arrive for their visit. But Yoomi need not worry; Grandma is just next door, and everything turns out all right once they enter her house. This picture book, which even contains a recipe for kimbap, shows readers that even a day that seems decidedly unpleasant and disappointing can turn out to be fun, after all. Despite everything that goes wrong for Yoomi, she still gets to sample some new treats and spend time with her grandmother, who makes everything right again.
Still, this picture book is quite relatable as most of us have had those times when nothing works out as planned and we can't order or have our favorite food.

Yoomi, the main character is ready for Sunday Funday! But from the moment she wakes up, nothing goes right.
However, she is given opportunities to find fun and happiness throughout the day, despite the dissapointments. Life often doesn't meet expectations, and this is a story that shows how we can still make the most of things even when we have issues along the way. Yoomi is Korean and the story also highlights Korean culture thro This is a simple story that kids will find much to identify with. Yoomi is Korean and the story also highlights Korean culture throughout.
The backmatter gives more information about the Korean Towns found in many cities and shown in the story, and a recipe for Kimbap, a Korean snack that book ends the story. I generally prefer that stories feature illustrations that show people as characters instead of animals, especially when discussing different cultures. Human characters create more empathy and understanding in readers. But this book is part of a series, and I know many writers still use animal characters in children's books as a unifying element. Overall a good read that introduces children to Korean culture as well as gives them opportunities to work through everyday frustrations.
Apr 08, Lisa rated it liked it. Sunday starts off as a disappointment for Yoomi. She can't watch her favorite show, have her favorite breakfast, or wear her favorite shirt. But, she dies get to ride the bus with Daddy to Koreatown! There she can stop at the bookmobile, and try something new at the market, but a Fun day won't happen if they miss their visit to Grandma.
I loved the colorful illustrations representing Yoomi's cultural experiences in Koreatown.

I loved that the store s are in Korean, and know that a Korean child will recognize much more than I do - such a great mirror. Yoomi's family are represented as cats - but the "people" in Koreatown are all sorts of animals, not sure if this represents different cultures or different families. There are other Yoomi picture books in this series. Includes an explanation of Koreatown K-town and a recipe for Kimbap.
