The Talmud compares the Jewish Sabbath to a queen whose arrival changes a home into a palace. When Rosie's mother explains this concept to her, the girl decides that she wants to be the Shabbat Princess. She puts on her fanciest dress, finest jewelry, and sparkly tiara and persuades her parents to polish the silver wine goblet, replace the plain brass candlesticks with shiny crystal ones, and trade the ordinary napkin covering the challah for a glittery, sequined scarf. After reciting the blessings and enjoying a delicious meal, the family agrees that the Shabbat Princess has transformed their dinner into a royal banquet. The detailed illustrations, with a heavy dose of pink and purple, depict the warmth and love of this cheerful, contemporary family. Jewish girls who love all things related to princesses, especially fans of Pinkalicious and Fancy Nancy, will delight in this endearing story. It also gives parents and educators the opportunity to discuss the important Jewish values of welcoming guests and using beautiful objects to enhance observances, explained briefly in an author's note.Rachel Kamin, North Suburban Synagogue Beth El, Highland Park, IL
