Dim Sum for Everyone!

by Grace Lin

Published by Alfred A. Knopf, 2001
24 pages
ISBN: 0-375-81082-X

Ages 4 - 6

A young Chinese girl and her family go out to a restaurant for dim sum, and everyone chooses his or her favorite among the "many little dishes": sweet pork buns, fried shrimp, turnip cakes, egg tarts, and more. "Everyone eats a little bit of everything" before they are through in this short, lively text set against vibrant full-color art. A wonderful author's note provides an explanation of dim sum history and customs. Delightful end papers show many dim sum dishes with their English and Chinese names.
