Jasmine Toguchi, Mochi Queen

Written by Debbi Michiko Florence and Illustrated by Elizabet Vukovic

For once, Jasmine wishes SHE could do something before Sophie (her big sister)―something special, something different. The New Year approaches, and as the Toguchi family gathers in Los Angeles to celebrate, Jasmine is jealous that her sister gets to help roll mochi balls by hand with the women. Her mom says that Jasmine is still too young to join in, so she hatches a plan to help the men pound the mochi rice instead. Surely her sister has never done THAT before.
