Dim Sum for Everyone!

Dim Sum for Everyone! by Grace Lin (Dragonfly Books, 2001).

With the Chinese Lunar New Year coming up on February 8, I thought it would be appropriate to share this book.  A young girl goes to a dim sum restaurant with her family and teaches us about all the different types of small dishes.  Dim sum means "little hearts" or "touches the heart" in Cantonese.   This is a great educational book for kids and adults alike. I also like that the restaurant patrons are diverse.
