This children's book is beautifully crafted and illustrated, fulfilling the lighthearted tone it is meant to have. Given that it is about a Princess, the story suggests she has all the toys in the world, but there is something missing that her animal friends (that she loves and cherishes) cannot provide, which is having human friends. Growing up I loved reading books involving princesses, animals and nature, and this story is no exception. Searching for underlying meanings or lessons never crossed my mind while I was a part of the demographic that will be listening to/reading this story; I was more interested in the appealing illustrations and happily ever after. I certainly recommend this book as an enjoyable, leisurely read to young boys and girls.

I loved the illustrations in this book. The author created a story line that was well written and easily portrayed in the pictures. Now with that said, while this book is technically geared towards children, the story line is aimed more towards adults. What I got from it is that no matter what possessions you give a child, they are still going to want human companionship and nothing can be a substitute for those interactions. This story is a great reminder to parents that "love" is what a child needs, not "possessions" that most willingly hand over in a temper tantrum at the store.

Princess Rachel by Jorge R. Guerra and published by Dorrance Publishing, starts out wonderfully about a little girl who makes friends with animals and plants. Rachel is very lonely and wants to make friends with other children. She sets out on a quest to make friends. Rachel finds her way to the park and brings home several children to see where she lives, meet her animal friends and play. This is where in my opinion the story becomes too much about her belongings, detailed listings of the game consoles, gaming rooms and other high ticket items. The story’s underlying theme of a little girl and how she wants to make friends is touching and a great message for children. I read this to my children and while they marveled at the amount of belongings Rachel possesses, they were still able to catch onto the fact that everyone wants to have friends. The book is beautifully illustrated with cute characters. I received a complimentary copy of “Princess Rachel” as a member of the Dorrance Publishing Book Review Team.
