Jade is a curious nine-year-old who likes to help out at her family’s Chinese restaurant, the Fragrant Garden, after school. Though she is often allowed to help set tables or clean up, she longs to be part of the more exciting tasks such as helping in the kitchen or using the cash register.
How can Jade convince her father that she is ready for more responsibility?
