In English, dim sum means “little hearts,” or “touches the heart,” but to this young girl, dim sum means delicious.

And as is traditional and fun, they share their food with each other so that everyone gets a bite of everything.

    This review is from: Dim Sum for Everyone (Hardcover)

    My 2 yr old son absolutely loves this book! He can recite every single page!
    I grew up speaking Cantonese and I didn’t know how to pronounce all the dim sum dishes, but Ms. Lin has helped by listing the most popular dim sum dishes with the English translation and Cantonese pronunciations at the end of the book.
    This book also contains very colorful illustrations and a little descriptive history on dim sum.
    As for “two shoes”, that is what seems to come out of my son’s mouth whenever he tries to say “dishes”. 🙂

    Dim Sum!, October 24, 2001
    By A Customer
    This review is from: Dim Sum for Everyone (Hardcover)

    Each person in the family picks out something different as the cart with the little dishes comes around in the dim sum restaurant. With a sing-song rhythm, Lin describes the familiar ritual of a family having dim sum together, describing as she does so a bit of Chinese culture. “Little dishes on carts. Little dishes on tables…Everyone eats a little bit of everything.” Her illustrations show a table full of brightly colored plates topped with small portions of various foods: fried shrimp, turnip cakes, sweet tofu, and little egg tarts. Ma-Ma, Ba-Ba, and the three daughters wear clothes with intricate patterns, set against a backdrop of swirls. The effect is a rich mesh of textures and a collage of little plates! Lin ends the book simply as she began it with the statement, “Now there are empty little dishes.” She includes the history of the dim sum tradition at the end of the book, as well as small pictures of each dim sum dish, labeled in English and Chinese.

    My three year old daughter loves this book. She enjoys picking out her favorite pieces of dim sum in the book and then pointing out my favorites. The illustrations are beautiful. My daughter likes to bring the book with her when we go out for dim sum and then she matches up the food items at the restaurant with the pictures in the book. It is a good book to introduce dim sum to a child.
