I thnk you're off to a great start. Here's my feedback:
1. After reading your post and your front page, I'm not certain what you're offering. Think of how you can rephrase just a bit your front page so that someone landing there will know exactly what you're offering.
2. Your resources page is EXCELLENT.
3. Your products page needs some work. You have just a few things listed and each link of course takes you to Amazon.
I think you're off to an AWESOME start. Don't worry about the search engines. They'll find you. With Google it can take 6 months or so.
How to get traffic? Write articles, put up a blog, post on forums, put some ads up on sites where you believe your target market is hanging out.
Hope this helps a bit.

Thank you, Audrey, those are good suggestions. I thought building the website would be the hard part, but now I
I like the featured products. However, I think that the link to your products needs to be more defined. Perhaps simplify the text on the main page. Make it into an image for some pop.
We do the Google Adwords. We get some clicks, but only one order from that so far. Although, it was our biggest order. You can always market offline too. Send out some postcards. Join some homeschooling groups to get parents to buy. Sponsor a school program in your area or sponsor some family friendly event to get your name out there.
Thank you so much for your comments.
I agree with Audrey. Once I clicked around for a while, I realized what you were offering. And I have to say that as the future parent of a Korean child (and being one myself), your Korean selections are great! Not everyone is as motivated to stay and browse, though, so you may want to consider a better "hook" on your front page. One that will convey your message before readers do any scrolling.
I'm looking forward to linking to your site from my in-the-works learning blog! (not the one linked to below)
Thanks so much for your input. You're right about some things being too "buried". I
I agree with the other comments on making your options more well-defined. Great idea and nice website!

You've done a pretty excellent job. :) I was pleasantly surprised. I am a Web programmer, so I see some pretty bad sites that have very confusing navigation, poor content, and so on. Your site is much better than I expected.
