Sydney Taylor is the author of the All-of-a-Kind Family series.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-6-More All-of-a-Kind Family is the third book in Sydney Taylor's series that transports children back to a time of horses and wagons and colorful, bustling neighborhoods. The books chronicle a Jewish immigrant family at the beginning of the 20th century. The richly drawn characters, based on Taylor's own life, include five sisters and their mischievous brother, Charlie. New York's upper east side provides the backdrop as the unwatched Charlie toddles in front of an on-coming wagon with unexpected results. But, while the family's lively adventures take place during a very different time, there is a universality to the human emotions that transcends time, and insures that this series will be passed from one generation to the next. Suzanne Toren, the narrator of the previous audiobooks, demonstrates her acting ability again as she imbues each of the sisters with unique voices. A master of age and accent, Toren moves flawlessly between generations and ethnic backgrounds. Fans of the series will be happy to settle with this audiobook, while those who are meeting the All-of-a-Kind Family for the first time will soon feel right at home.
