A Special Bilingual Story for Mother’s Day!

We came up with this special bilingual story for Mother’s Day, featuring the Bao family! It’ll be up in the Dim Sum Warriors app soon, but we thought we’d give you a sneak preview in video form—performed in both English and Chinese. This story is dedicated to all the moms out there and the magic they do on a daily basis!

Discuss as a family after reading this bilingual story for Mother’s Day:

1. What are the invisible things that mothers do for the family on a daily basis?

2. What kind of daily planning, thinking, arranging, and decision-making do mommies do in your home?

3. What can you do to share not just the workload, but the thinking load in your family?

Here’s the story in English and simplified Chinese 简体字
(used in mainland China, Singapore and Malaysia):

And here’s the story in English and traditional Chinese 繁體字
(used mainly in Taiwan and Hong Kong):
