Cover: The Shabbat Princess

“Candles, latkes, gifts— Chanukah traditions bring light and joy to the dark days of winter. As you select presents for your children, we urge you to give them books.

Little girls love The Shabbat Princess by Amy Meltzer. This is a cute story about a little girl who loves princesses, and wants her family to welcome not just the Shabbat Queen, but a Shabbat Princess, too. She dresses in her finest princess grown, and her parents get into the spirit by bringing little used but treasured objects to the table. The Jewish value of hiddur mitzvah—the enhancement of mitzvot and observances with objects of beauty—is explained in an endnote.” —Interfaith Family
