Ella, Sarah, Henny, Charlotte, and Gertie love reading library books, hate dusting, and get excited about celebrating their Jewish heritage on New York’s East Side at the turn of the century. Mama teaches the girls how to cook and clean, and how helping the family can be fun. Working together, the All-of-a-Kind family survives many adventures. All-of-a-Kind Family is flavored with the sights, sounds, and smells of the Jewish celebrations throughout the year.
