About this title


During the Depression, love binds a family together, as Jennie's first year in school is marked by Papa's losing his job, Mama's going to work, and the birth of a baby. A sequel to DinnieAbbieSister-r-r!

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4-- In this sequel to DinnieAbbieSister-r-r! (Bradbury, 1987), Jennie is a year older, ready to begin first grade in Brooklyn. The Depression has forced Papa to close his business, so Mama must work until their new baby is born. Levinson has once again captured the essence of a struggling Jewish family's life during a specific time period. Traditional roles are challenged and maintained; Mama becomes the breadwinner while Jennie cannot attend synagogue in the same capacity as her brothers do. Simply written in an easy, flowing style, this story offers a smooth transition from the first book, yet also stands on its own. An open-ended final chapter, without a solution for Papa's unemployment, seems to point the way to another story about these increasingly appealing characters. A winning book, amply illustrated with black-and-drawings. --Rita Soltan, Baldwin Public Library, Birmingham, MI
