Favourite Children's Book

'Waiting for Mummy' by Tae-Jun Lee

This is a beautiful children's book set in Korea. It's about this child who's waiting at the tram stop for him mummy to pick him up. Each time a tram comes, he asks the tram driver if his mummy is on the tram. Each tram driver tells him no until finally, his mum comes. It's such a pretty story, and it's a very old one too.

The illustration of this version is done by Dong- Sung Kim, and it's absolutely beautiful, which is why I love it so much. It's just beautiful.
