I can't wait to see everyone. I'm going to eat lots of shrimp dumplings, rice noodle rolls, egg tarts, and my favorite – char siu buns. We will have to order enough for us all to share. So what are you waiting for? Dim sum, here we come!
This delicious picture book from Maple Lam celebrates loves, family, and of course, FOOD!
While the food might seem to steal the show in this cheerful book, Lam links it all together with an emphasis on sharing: ‘sharing dim sum means I love you.’
Lam's love of both dim sum and family is infectious, and she deftly weaves cultural details into the story.
Sharing, caring, and cultural traditions mark a Chinese American family's weekly meal together in author-illustrator Lam's delectable picture book.
This is a charming, ebullient celebration of family and food, but it is also a playful primer for readers unfamiliar with Chinese customs and dim sum.
