Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Sydney Taylor is the Laura Ingalls Wilder of Jewish YA fiction.

About the Author

Born in 1904 on New York's Lower East Side, Sydney Taylor was one of the first authors of childrens books centered on Jewish characters. She didnt 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 wasnt until her husband secretly submitted it to Charles A. Follet Award for Writing that Taylors 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.
