Fans of Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House books will enjoy a citified version as Sydney Taylor gives a charming glimpse at a time when daily life was very different, but family and faith were surprisingly the same. After moving uptown to the Bronx, the charming All-of-a-Kind Family have a new home, new neighbors and new friends. There's always something exciting going on. Ella misses Jules who has joined the Army, Henny spills tea on a dress she borrowed without asking, Sarah works to win a prize at school, Charlotte takes the elevated train without paying her fare, Gertie makes a pancake, and Charlie is terrified when he meets Santa Claus! And things are are especially busy as Mother has gone into the hospital, and everyone must help out to make the house run smoothly. Generations of readers have loved growing up with the five Jewish girls whose trials and triumphs are as recognizable today as they were a hundred years ago. This fourth title of the series follows the girls as they grow into much more independent young women, and younger brother Charlie keeps everyone on their toes.
