"The family from Dim Sum for Everyone is back for a new outing- building and flying their own kite "
The wind is blowing. It is a good day for kites The whole family makes a trip to the local craft store for paper, glue, and paint. Everyone has a job: Ma-Ma joins sticks together. Ba-Ba glues paper. Mei-Mei cuts whiskers while Jie-Jie paints a laughing mouth. Dragon eyes are added and then everyone attaches the final touch . . . a noisemaker Now their dragon kite is ready to fly.
"Kite Flying" celebrates the Chinese tradition of kite making and kite flying and lovingly depicts a family bonded by this ancient and modern pleasure.
