A family dinner menu inspired by the children’s book My Day with Gong Gong by Sennah Yee.
Our Family Dinner Book Club theme for the year is Celebrations! This month we’re celebrating Grandparent’s Day with My Day with Gong by Sennah Yee. To accompany this themed dinner menu, Growing Book by Book has a reading list of additional books. Sunny Day Family shares a selection of crafts to help celebrate.

My Day with Gong Gong is a sweet story about a young child spending the day with their grandfather. Throughout the day they have many adventures and spend time bonding with one another. This is a great book for kids to share with their grandparents. Our dinner menu for this month is inspired by the dim sum restaurant they visit, as well as family recipes from my own grandparents.
Dim sum is a collection of small plates that are shared around the table. This is often called “family style” and is my absolute favorite way to serve any meal. Everyone at the table can pick and choose what and how much they want from each dish. This is great for kids to get some ownership and choice about what they eat.
