Jasmine Toguchi is a determined, smart Japanese-American eight-year-old who wants to pound the mochi for New Year's. Except only the men in her family do the mochi-tsuki! She wants to participate but worries that she's not strong enough to wield the hammer to pound the sticky rice into mochi.

What a cute, heartwarming story--perfect, I think, for my nieces, who are part Japanese-American and in the reading age range. And it evoked memories for me, of helping my grandmother make mochi in her kitchen and having the mochi in our ozoni every New Year's Day.
