sunday snack

Just in case you need to nibble on a little something, here’s one of Renee Ting’s recent "Multicultural Minute" videos featuring food picture books. We were happy to see Dumpling Soup included with some of our long time faves, like The Ugly Vegetables and Dim Sum for Everyone by Grace Lin. And we reviewed Cora Cooks Pancit by Dorina K. Lazo Gilmore not too long ago. All in all, a tantalizing menu!

Hope you’re having a nice Sunday!

So, anyway – I’d love to know what a children’s book says about it.

    The “Everybody” books are all by the same person (it’s a series) — Norah Dooley.
    I haven’t seen the squeamish book but I hope to soon! Looks intriguing.
