Publisher's summary

Sydney Taylor grew up among immigrant families on New York City's Lower East Side prior to World War I and wrote the All-of-a-Kind Family series for her daughter. This sequel finds talented Ella, mischievous Henny, studious Sarah, dreamy Charlotte, and little Gertie helping Mama with their new baby brother, Charlie. Sydney Taylor's charming books capture the everyday life of a home with little money but lots of love and good times to share.

Critic reviews

"Suzanne Toren skillfully portrays the immigrant parents' accents, the chirpy children, and even sings a beautiful ballad.... Everyone will enjoy and benefit from meeting the All-of-a-Kind Family." (AudioFile)

"Suzanne Toren's nuanced reading brings the characters to life. She perfectly captures the voices of the young sisters, and her rendition of the immigrant accents of New York keeps the reading lively.... Children will find themselves captivated." (School Library Journal)
