Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A new addition to the World Snacks board book series, Yum Yum Dim Sum by Amy Wilson Sanger uses the enticing names ("oolong tea"; "ha gau" housed in bamboo steamers, etc.) and delectable collage images good enough to eat to explore a Chinese family-style meal. A glossary on the back describes the mysterious contents of the exotic foods. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
The lucky little one in this book is enjoying dim sum (family-style Chinese teahouse food according to the glossary on the back cover). The delightful collage illustrations introduce a variety of oriental delicacies such as ha gau (steamed shrimp dumplings), scallion pancakes, stuffed dau fu (tofu), siu mai (basket shaped dumplings of mixed pork shrimp and mushrooms) and lots more. All of these delicious tid bits are accompanied by cups of steaming oolong tea. Sanger has created all of the images with cut paper and fabric. If you have never had a chance to indulge yourself, this board book just might get Mom, Pop and the kids off to their nearest dim sum restaurant. This board book is a nice addition to collections featuring ethnic foods as well as an introduction to a facet of Chinese culture. 2003, Tricycle Press/Ten Speed Press, Ages 1 to 5.

School Library Journal
PreS-K-The rhymes in this text fit perfectly with the yummy illustrations. Using boldly printed paper along with wood, fabric, and a variety of other materials, the "little bits of heart" that make up a dim sum meal are presented in wonderful, seemingly three-dimensional collages. The steam rising from the cut-paper cups of oolong tea and the realistic-looking scallion pancake will have readers hungry for more. The Chinese names are used for most of the dishes, and although there is no pronunciation guide, there is a glossary on the back cover. Pair this board book with Grace Lin's Dim Sum for Everyone! (Knopf, 2001) for a delightful introduction to this unique dining experience.-Genevieve Gallagher, Orange County Public Library, VA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
