Little Golden Books are known for providing a bite-sized summary of popular stories for younger kids and are especially popular with parents reading to their children ages two-to-five. The newly released (July 28, 2020) adaptation of the Academy Award-winning Pixar short film wonderfully captures the art style and emotion of Domee Shi’s story in 24 pages.
If you’re a fan of Bao, this sweet (and surprising) adaptation is another fantastic addition to the Little Golden Book franchise. We already bought the eBook version, and, our hardcover edition is in the mail — we collect all of the Pixar-themed Golden Books.

In Bao, an aging Chinese mom suffering from empty nest syndrome gets another chance at motherhood when one of her dumplings springs to life as a lively, giggly dumpling boy. Mom excitedly welcomes this new bundle of joy into her life, but Dumpling starts growing up fast, and Mom comes to the bittersweet realization that nothing stays cute and small forever. This beautifully illustrated Little Golden Book retells the short film from Pixar Animation Studios and director Domee Shi, which explores the ups and downs of the parent-child relationship through the rich, colorful lens of the Chinese immigrant community in Canada.
