The Girl-Son

A story for ages 6-12

Induk Pahk was born at a time when most Korean girls did not go to school. Her widowed mother, convinced her daughter could learn as well as any boy, dressed Induk as a boy and sent her to school. As seven-year-old Induk walked into the classroom of  boys, all eyes were on her. Would they believe she was a boy? Would they eventually guess her secret?

This is the true story of the many adventures of a girl who worked hard to move beyond her own poverty and restrictions to become an impassioned educator.
