A young Chinese girl and her family go out to a restaurant for dim sum , and everyone chooses his or her favorite among the “many little dishes”: sweet pork buns, fried shrimp, turnip cakes, egg tarts, and more. “Everyone eats a little bit of everything” before they are through in this short, lively text set against vibrant full-color art.
