With her inspired works, acclaimed author Grace Lin has earned a Geisel Honor and a Newbery Honor. In Dumpling Days, Pacy’s family travels to Taiwan for a month. This is Pacy’s first trip to Taiwan, so she’s extremely excited. But soon, she realizes that everything about this trip is difficult: speaking the language, following her art teacher’s directions—even making friends. Fortunately, it’s not long before Pacy sees that the trip isn’t all bad—and that the family bonding that occurs makes everything else worthwhile.

My seven-year-old loves this book. She read it first, but now she enjoys listening to it over and over because the narrator uses excellent voices for the different characters and pronounces the Chinese words. We highly recommend it!
Voices and Chinese pronunciation make this a wonderful listen.
