Unwrapping Some Wonderful Illustrations for You

The Book 

Taekwondo Oath

I will observe the principles of taekwondo. 
I will respect the instructor and all senior ranks.
I will never misuse taekwondo.
I will be a champion of freedom and justice.
I will build a more peaceful world. 

A little impatient Kitten wants to break a board but she wants to do it instantly... like NOW!  She is about to learn some very valuable life lessons.  Some things require patience, hard work and determination before you can obtain your goal.  She practice lots and is dedicated to achieving her objective.  Will Kitten commit to persevere and never, ever give up? 

The book includes quite a few Korean terms and luckily they are translated in a glossary at the end of the book.  The illustrations are action-packed and the animal characters are adorable and relatable.  
The inspiring message?  Hard work does pay off if you have your heart set on attaining your goal.  Yes you can!  I highly recommend this book.
