Dim Sum for Everyone!

Dim Sum for Everyone!

by Grace Lin Illustrated by Grace Lin

In English, "dim sum" means "little hearts," or "touches the heart," but to this young girl, "dim sum" means "delicious." On a visit to a bustling dim sum restaurant, a family picks their favorite little dishes from the steaming trolleys filled with dumplings, cakes, buns, and tarts. And, as is traditional and fun, they share their food with each other so that everyone gets a bite of everything.

Just right for young children, Dim Sum for Everyone! celebrates a cultural custom and a universal favorite activity: eating!
