Children Ages 6+ • 1.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Allison Hiroto brings joy and spunk to 8-year-old Jasmine's grand plans and adventures. Jasmine is tired of being too young to do anything and never getting to do anything first. As the New Year approaches, Jasmine is jealous that her older sister gets to help make mochi, so Jasmine comes up with a plan to be the first girl in her family to pound the mochi rice. Hiroto imbues Jasmine with plenty of emotion that expresses all the ups and downs of her in-between age. In addition, Hiroto's range of voices for each character adds depth to the story, and her pacing matches the frenetic energy of children.
