To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My daughter LOVES this book. It is the perfect book. The story is great and universal -- all children can relate to not being able to do things as well as they would like and learning to get better at something. The story also does a great job of being true to the character's Chinese culture, it's not the most important feature, it's just not hidden. We made dumplings (not bao) together and she could relate. We ill be purchasing the other book - Amy Wu and the Patchwork Dragon. We hope that more Amy Wu books come out.
My 4 yo son loves this book. After reading it over and over, he insisted we make "the perfect bao". As we were making them, he talked me through the steps of "rising", "pinch, pinch, pinching" and "steaming" and he was so excited to eat them. It's great to see more children's books featuring Asian main characters and also teaching about the culture. Please write more!
I bought this book for my 5 year old son adopted from China. He has a strong attachment to his birth country. We both loved this book! It is well written and illustrated. The story is sweet, shows healthy family relationship and encourages kids to persevere. My son asks me to read it nearly every day. Highly recommend.
We have been struggling with our 4 year old suddenly not wanting to try new foods. I got this book to show her a little girl eating something different from what we normally have to show her that “different” isn’t only for grown ups. It worked! She’s been giving more things a try lately.
I also really enjoyed the story showing that it’s ok to struggle with something and keep trying.
The book also includes a recipe for bao! We’re going to try our best! :)
We got it at our library and my daughter wanted to have her own, so i bought it. She likes me to read it at least 2 times a week. She is interested in the dumplings and wants to try need food. It's a story about perseverance. Enjoy.
