Book Description:

​Telly Award-winning artist Jennifer Shaw’s new children’s book, “Dumplings Mean Family,” is told from her son Ethan’s perspective as he shares what it was like to join their family after his adoption.

“When Ethan and his siblings are adopted from China to the United States, everything seems so strange and different. Their new American family doesn’t even know how to make Chinese food! The children are worried. Will they ever get to eat their favorite meals again? For Ethan’s family, embracing two cultures means learning to fold and pinch their way to dumplings that taste like home.”

Truly a family project, Jennifer’s oldest daughter, Rinnah, served as illustrator for this heartwarming book celebrating the truth that families can be strong and united when they commit to loving each other for who they truly are. As Ethan says, “We may be different in some ways, but we are one family!”

  1. First I thought, “great, I love dumplings!” Then I saw the trailer which brought me to tears.
    I can’t tell you how many ways this stirred my heart.
    Thank you so much RobbyeFaye for showcasing this wonderful book.

    1. Aww, that’s so sweet! I know what you mean though, it’s a very touching story.
      You are so very welcome. I’m so grateful the Lord led me to this ministry. At the time of my first (and I thought) only review, I never dreamed where it would lead me.
      Blessings, dear one~
