Format: Board book
This book is fun, a charming introduction to dim sum, and even a little bit educational for adults -- I'm hoping I can do more than point next time I go for dim sum. The rhymes are simple and catchy, and the illustrations (with pictures made from scraps of fabric) are intriguing. My baby daughter is mesmerized by the book and stares at each page intently as I read. As an added bonus, after reading "Why oh why, my little sho mai, why do I love you so?" aloud several times, I have taken to calling my daughter shao "sho mai" (little meat ball). This is BY FAR one of our favorite read aloud board books.

My sister-in-law bought all four Amy Wilson Sanger books for my kids, starting when they were about 6 months old, finally buying this new title recently (the kids are now 18 months.) They absolutely love all her books. The rhythm is perfect for little kids, and the illustrations are colorful and fun. The books are also somewhat educational for grown-ups - I didn't know the names for all the dim sum myself.
My only gripe is that, while she puts definitions on the back of this one, there's no pronunciation guide.

Format: Board book
I really LOVE this multicultural food series in board book format. The collage illustrations along with the simple, rhyming text are perfect for both child and adult to enjoy! I also appreciate the word glossary, which is provided at the end of the book. Good rhythm and flow throughout the book.

This book is a wonderful preperation for your child's first Dim Sum experience. As an adult, you will be able to ask for certain dishes in Chinese- no more pointing at the rolling cart and saying "That one, please." My 1-year-old's favorite dish is the sesame balls with red bean paste! I love them, too!

New vocabulary: dim sum, oolong, ha gau, scallion pancakes, dau fu, siu mai, jing cha siu boa, sticky rice, spring roll, sesame ball, don tot.

Text example: "Smell the steamy oolong tea pouring from the pot. Let's wait together while it cools. These little cups are hot!"

The art represented in this book is really quite good, considering it's target audience is small children! Within the background of the pictures, you will find Chinese calligraphy, traditional Chinese folk art, silk brocades, dragon prints and floral paintings. All of this is behind the main, collage-style illustrations!

Makes a great gift for your toddler's first Chinese New Year! (Coming up on January 29th).

The art is neat and interesting, the rhymes are awkward. We like it because we eat dim sum with the Chinese side of our family, and take our daughter to dim sum whenever possible. At 16 mos old, she is not at all interested in this book yet (if ever) although she loves most of her books. It is possible she will grow into it as she makes the connections between the book and Chinatown.

After spending 14 days in Guangzhou and eatting dim sum and loving it, I am enjoying reading this book to our daughter! She baby signs more, more and we love reading and looking at this beautiful book and the pictures. The photos are so life like that you almost expect to feel the fabric and material of each page! Can't wait to get more of Amy Wilson Sanger's books!

I checked this out from the library with a stack of other books. I am alwasy trying new books for my daughter who can not get enough of us readsing to her. Well she loves this book. We have to read it every night before bed. She pretends to eat the food off the page and learned to say "Yum Yum," and "little bit of heart." fromt his story. I can not recommend it enough! Our copy had to go back to the library, so I am ordering one from amazon today. I know my daughter can;t wait for it to arrive.

Bought this, my first book of sushi & let's nosh - my son LOVES them. They are very clever little books and I love that they are short, whitty and fun to read (especially when your toddler wants you to read the same book over 20 times in a row...it better be fun:) I also just bought this for my sister's new baby girl and she loves it too. These are a must have in a baby/toddler's library. WARNING: make sure you've eaten before reading - book will make you hungry!

We purchased this book because our daughter is half Chinese (my husband is Chinese) and we love eating dim sum! This book is absolutely adorable! Amy Wilson Sanger does an incredible job creating dim sum treats out of paper and other materials to make the images come alive on page! I love reading this book to our 6 month old daughter, who is so fascinated by the pretty colors and sing-songy words. This is sure to be a favorite of hers when she's older!
