Anyone who loves dim sum will love this book! Going to dim sum on the weekends is a family treat, and this book certainly reminds us of our favorite things to order.

Dim Sum for Everyone! 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!

* "Like the pleasures of dim sum, this is a compact treat" - Booklist, Starred

Recommended for ages 3-7.



Dim Sum is of Cantonese origin and is for lunch.  There is often a tea charge and may have lunch specials.  The book mentions some of the more classical dishes and ones that would not gross out those of us who are not as adventuresome.  Like chicken feet, tripe, etc.  There is often a tea charge and lunch specials may be available.  At nights, the Dim Sum Restaurants become a Chinese Sea Food Restaurant.  They often have live fish, shrimp, etc. in tanks and you can choose which one you want for dinner.  At night on weekends they often host weddings.  Rowland Heights, where I live, has some of the best dim sum restaurants in the US.

Lesson Plans:
  • Grace Lin on her web site has some great activities
  • Many dimsum restaurants and Chinese bakeries offer dimsum to go.  Buy some dimsum for your class, get some chopsticks, and enjoy!
