Dim Sum for Everyone (Asian ASL Story)

Paolo Luciano ASL tells the story in ASL from the book, Dim Sum For Everyone, written by Grace Lin.

In English, dim sum means “little hearts,” or “touches the heart,” but to this young girl, dim sum means delicious. On a visit to a bustling dim sum restaurant, a family picks their favorite little dishes from the steaming trolleys filled with dumplings, cakes, buns, and tarts. And as is traditional and fun, they share their food with each other so that everyone gets a bite of everything. This video was produced by the Southern California Asian Deaf Association.
