The Mochi Makers

Item # 151540.

By Sharon Fujimoto-Johnson.

Emi and Obaachan are making mochi. It’s a recipe that’s been passed down  for generations. Obaachan brought it with her when she first came to  America from Japan and now, Emi is about to become her family’s newest  mochi maker!

They mix and pound and twist and wrap. The  Japanese rice cakes are sticky and chewy, colorful and tasty, and—most  importantly—made with love. For Emi and Obaachan, making mochi becomes a  way to remember those they’ve lost, make lots of new memories, and have  a fun and family-filled day.

Hardbound: 40 pp.
