Praise for DUMPLING DAY

“Sriram’s simple rhyming story celebrating the unifying magic of food pairs well with the childlike naïveté of de Antuñano’s inclusive and diverse gouache illustrations. Without skipping a beat, she folds words for both dumplings and family members and their respective languages into her couplets.”Kirkus Reviews, July 2021. Full review here.
