    This is a bright and bouncy picture book that shows a Chinese family coming together to share a meal. Each verse finds a different member of the family enjoying part of the meal and uses the Mandarin words for family members. This would be a great addition to storytimes about family or mealtime. Pronunciation guides to the family names are included in the back of the book.

    Very appealing, and I love the author and illustrator notes at the end of the book. This would be perfect in so many instances--and I really like the idea of matching it up with the tune of "Wheels on the Bus"... but the syllabic structure and rhythm are off. This makes it clunky overall. I'd be hesitant to use it in storytime without re-writing some text, which I generally try not to do whenever possible (as I presume that the author wrote it precisely that way for a reason).

    Very cute, and I can see this easily being incorporated in storytime. Sometimes the meter of the song doesn't exactly match up, but I'll give the book a pass since it's focus it more on all the adorable details of the meal of a meal with a Chinese family. I love the informational pages (and pronunciation guide) in the backmatter that make this a very accessible read. The illustrations aren't groundbreaking but are decidedly kid friendly and sweet.

    This book had me smiling all the way through! It's a lively and heartwarming celebration of family, food, and the traditions that bring us together. Kids will immediately recognize the familiar tune of "The Wheels on the Bus" and will want to sing along. The repetition and onomatopoeia will make this an especially fun and engaging read aloud. I also enjoyed the backmatter about the foods shared, the Chinese words for family members, and dining etiquette. This book had me smiling all the way through!

    It took me some time to learn how to sing the words to this familiar tune, but once I could sing it fast enough, I had fun singing about rice, noodles, and dumpling, doing the actions, and imitating the sounds. A delightful book for young readers to learn about family togetherness and Chinese food.

    A cute book about a family get-together. The end features two glossaries (one about food and one about Chinese family names), dining etiquette, and author and illustrator notes. Sometimes the number of syllables doesn't match up perfectly with the tune of The Wheels On the Bus but with a little practice, I think it would be fairly easy to sing it through well.

    I really like this book but I can't seem to sing it to the rhythm of The Wheels on the Bus. I have trouble with "At the tables where my family gathers round" to find "All through the town" Loved the illustrations and the Food Glossary, A Chinese Family (titles for specific family members with pronunciation guide), and Dining Etiquette.

    I love this new picture book and it’s joyful, multigenerational family celebration of Chinese culture. The text is to the tune of “The Wheels on the Bus”, the illustrations are gorgeous and colourful and the back matter is great. It’s a perfect Storytime book. A must share.

    I like the illustrations and concept of the book. I did find it hard to sing the text as there are too many syllables to do it seamlessly or instinctively. When you have 20 preschoolers in front of you, it needs to be effortless for it to work well and still be attentive to the children.

    A sweet update to the Wheels on the Bus that is all about celebrating Chinese family and food. The actual text is a tiny bit awkward to fit into the beats of the song, but not impossible! Themes: Food, Family, Chinese Heritage Age range: Toddler-Preschool

    Clever variation on The Wheels on the Bus to capture a family dinner. More importantly, to show the love this family feels when they gather. The facial expressions show the joy and delight with being together. Great to read or sing as a family or class.

    I thought this was an incredibly fun and clever book that is sung to the tune of "The Wheels On the Bus". An Asian family is celebrating the food and traditions that bring them together and celebrate the love they have for each other. So fun!

    A new twist on an old roundelay with a familiar tune, that explores a different culture, dining etiquette, and family togetherness.

    Large bold graphics representing a Chinese Family. Set to the tune of Wheels on the Bus, this rhyming book is a delight and visual feast. Highly recommend for storytime.
