The Children's Book Podcast

Jan 19, 2021

Natasha Yim shares LUNA’s YUM YUM DIM SUM, a new picture book written by Natasha and illustrated by Violet Kim. Natasha talks about being invited to submit a story for the Storytelling Math series for Charlesbridge, which includes titles by Grace Lin, Sara Levine, and Ana Crespo. She started with an idea to set the story in a Chinese restaurant and asked herself the question, “Is being equitable the same as being fair?” The result was a fun and engaging sibling story over how to fairly divide portions when “fair” looks different from person to person.
