About the Book
A Story of Culture, Tradition, and Family
When Kimi and her family visit Grandma and Grandpa’s house for New Year’s mochitsuki, they discover the mochi-machine is broken. After initial fears that mochitsuki will be canceled, Grandpa proposes an interesting, yet old-fashioned solution of making mochi the hand-pounded way.
