Hiromi's Hands


Shifting from the present to past and back again, Barasch creates a sophisticated narrative line… Barasch’s delicate water color illustrations document Hiromi’s story in fresh, soft images of Japan and New York, of sushi makers, sushi eaters and sushi itself. New York City’s wharves, markets, and people are lovingly rendered… Hiromi’s Hands will be a treasured storybook for many children and an inspiration for young girls, whether they aspire to break cultural traditions or update them.
