Can she rise to the occasion? Amy Wu & the Perfect Bao by Kat Zhang, illustrated by Charlene Chua, gives readers a glimpse into the home and routines of a Chinese-American family, and with it, providing representation at the young reader level that isn’t often seen in the picture book space. Amy loves to make bao with her family. But it takes skill to make the bao taste and look delicious. And her bao keep coming out all wrong. Then she has an idea that may give her a second chance…Will Amy ever make the perfect bao?

Combined with Chinese-Canadian Chua’s illustrations, which are full of humor, warmth, and vibrancy, this duo brings the bao-making process to bold, mouthwatering life.
