"Why should we learn and use Hanguel correctly? This picture book sheds a light on what Hangul means to us from a historical perspective."
- Book Intro
In the days when there were no Korean alphabets, many commoners suffered injustice and discomfort because they could not read and write at all. Only after King Sejong made Hangeul was it possible for all the people to read and write by learning letters. The significance and principles of Hangeul, as the Korea's greatest cultural heritage and the most suitable medium for Korean language, are explained at a child's level.
