Note: 
A sweet, old-fashioned story about two sisters - Penina, age 9, and Shoshanna, age 12 – who enjoy a comfortable in 19th century London. Members of a affluent Sephardic family, they have a nanny, butler, cook, governess, coachman, and other servants. Descriptions of their family life give some insight into Sephardic life at that time, with contrasting views of impoverished Eastern European immigrants in the East End. The story, which is the first in a “Jewish Girls Around the World” series, extols the Jewish virtues of kindness, modesty, patience, tzedakah, prayer, and compassion.
