All-of-a-Kind Family Uptown by Sydney Taylor


All-of-a-Kind Family Uptown by Sydney Taylor

This book is for ages 9-12. Sydney Taylor grew up among immigrant families on New York City's Lower East Side prior to World War I, and wrote the All-of-a-Kind Family stories for her daughter. Based on her family and childhood, these charming books capture the everyday life of a home with little money but lots of love and good times to share. Each book shares the ups and downs in the lives of this special family, through the eyes of Ella, Charlotte, Henny, Sarah, Gertie, and their little brother, Charlie.
