Sydney Taylor's beloved All-of-a-Kind Family series chronicles a Jewish immigrant family at the beginning of the twentieth century. The richly drawn characters, based on Taylor's own life, include five sisters—Ella, Henny, Sarah, Charlotte, Gertie—and their mischievous brother, Charlie. The second book in the series, this YA classic presents a vivid and humorous portrait of life at the turn of the century, as WWI approaches, a single uncle finds love, and a new friendship blooms among latkes and the library.

Born in 1904 on New York's Lower East Side, Sydney Taylor was one of the first authors of children's books centered on Jewish characters, and is especially known for the immensely popular All-of-a-Kind Family series. The Sydney Taylor Book Award is given each year by the Jewish Association of Libraries to a book for young people that authentically portrays the Jewish experience.

About the Author:

Born in 1904 on New York's Lower East Side, Sydney Taylor was one of the first authors of children’s books centered on Jewish characters. She didn’t begin writing until she married and had a daughter, to whom she told bedtime stories about growing up with five sisters. She wrote a manuscript and put it in a drawer, and it wasn’t until her husband secretly submitted it to Charles A. Follet Award for Writing that Taylor’s bedtime stories became the immensely popular All-of-a-Kind Family series.

Taylor died in 1978 at the age of seventy-three. The Sydney Taylor Book Award is given each year by the Jewish Association of Libraries to a book for young people that authentically portrays the Jewish experience.

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.
