    1. The illustrations of this story seem just as if someone wrote it in a journal and then illustrated it Happy, colorful sketching fills the pages around the words, of the young girl Ruthie, whose grandmother is in the hospital and says she must have borscht by 5 pm or she will starve Ruthie gets no help from her father, who takes a nap, cannot find a written recipe, but gains help from a near neighbor, a Mrs Lerman, who drops by to see how Grandma is doing She claims to be the Empress of Borscht, [...]

    2. Ruthie s grandmother is sick in the hospital and all she wants is some borscht Actually, I think all she wants is a few hours to rest so she sends her family off to make soup But that s neither here nor there The grandmother s neighbors all stop by and offer advice about how to cook the best borscht but it turns out that Ruthie accidentally stumbles onto her grandmother s secret, special ingredient I thought the story fell a bit flat Ruthie never ends up with the recipe and while there s a lot o [...]

    3. I picked this up because I, too, am a Princess of Borscht Ruthie is an engaging heroine who thinks she may have bitten off than she could chew after she promises Grandma that she will make borscht and bring it to the hospital where Grandma may starve to death on hospital food Cue a few too many helpful neighbors and some delightful illustrations, and you have a recipe for an interesting afternoon Plus a real recipe for borscht on the back cover.

    4. Ruthie has a 5 o clock deadline to deliver homemade borscht to her Grandma who is in the hospital Unfortunately, she doesn t have the recipe, and the neighbors are very opinionated about the ingredients Good choice for story time about recipes, collaboration, and time.

    5. Cute story with illustrations in the vein of a Reading Rainbow book I m amazed she ever figured out how to make the borscht This could be a fun one to read aloud with all of the different ladies and their accents Probably best with school age.

    6. Loved the cultural and family connections, but overall the story is a little hard to believe and the main character is gullible.

    7. Ruthie s grandma wants Borscht soup to make her feel better so Ruthie and her neighbors help figure out how to make it without her grandma s recipe A.R.
