Overview
Dim Sum For Everyone!



Jie-Jie picks turnip cakes.


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!
