Got this book a month or so in an Amazon book subscription box for my 17 month old. I got the subscription so we could get some books that may not be on the radar, and this is definitely one that fits the bill. I do want him to have exposure to other cultures and we eat A LOT of all types of Asian food, so I figured this would be a good one to keep in our box.
It arrived and I was a little underwhelmed. As another reviewer mentioned, it doesn't really explain a ton about dim sum (in a kid friendly way in the body of the book). The sentences are really short and the book is quite short, even for a book for a toddler.
All of that said, my son LOVES this book. He gets to select his own books at bedtime (out of maybe 15-20 available in his room), and he is currently pulling it out on a nightly basis as one of the top 3 books we must read...again...and again...and again. ;) I'm not sure what he loves about it, but he does. I am considering getting others from this author if only so I can read about something other than dim sum every night of the week. ha, ha! Who knows if he's grasping anything about dim sum, but without a doubt, he loves this book.
The book is probably 2-3 stars from me, but I'm not a child. ;) He'd give it a 6!
