It's the turn of the century in New York's Lower East Side and a sense of adventure and excitement abounds for five young sisters-Ella, Henny, Sarah, Charlotte and Gertie. Follow along as they search for hidden buttons while dusting Mama's front parlor, or explore the basement warehouse of Papa's peddler's shop on rainy days. The five girls enjoy doing everything together, especially when it involves holidays and surprises. But no one could have prepared them for the biggest surprise of all!

Professional reviews

"Taylor's autobiographical series of books about a Jewish family on the Lower East Side of New York at the turn of the twentieth century is a classic. These endearing vignettes of family life are brought to life by Suzanne Toren. Her evenly paced narrative adroitly expresses each situation. The dialogue is done well, giving us the Papa's gruff voice, Mama's firm but loving voice, various New York accents, and the young voices of the girls so full of wonder and amazement. M.T.F.
