More About Sydney Taylor & Suzanne Toren
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.
Sydney Taylor was born in 1904 and died in 1978.

Reviews - What do customers think about More All-Of-A-Kind Family?
A classic series about a large Jewish family in turn-of-the-century New York City... Dec 22, 2006
Life in 1910s New York City is never dull for sisters Ella, Henny, Sarah, Charlotte and Gertie. Although poor, there's always a penny for candy at the corner store, as well as free adventures at the local library or their papa's junk store. Now Ella, a teenager, enters her first romance, and since their baby brother Charlie is growing older, he's finally able to have a free adventures of his own!
One terrible day, however, as the sisters are distracted with watching a wedding party exiting the temple, little Charlie toddles in front of a horse and wagon. With the driver unable to stop, tragedy seems inevitable...except for the intervention of a brave young immigrant woman.
After saving Charlie's life, Lena becomes an inextricable part of the family's lives. It seems perfectly natural when she's introduced to the girls' bachelor uncle Hyman, who's instantly smitten by the feisty independent woman.
But as summer and the couple's wedding nears, tragedy strikes in the form of polio. Will Lena become the children's aunt after all?
Along with their fun, there's also a strong background of the family's Jewish faith, which binds the community through good times and bad. No matter what happens, the girls know they're backed by the familiar traditions and a rich heritage.
Delightful Sequel Jul 21, 2000
In this sequel, Ella finds a boyfriend and Henny disagrees with Papa over her curfew. This story continues the tale of a Jewish family who lived in the Lower East Side of New York in the early 1900's. Entertaining as well as educational, this book describes the joys and fears in that place and time. I also enjoyed learning about some of the Jewish traditions. A delightful classic that every little girl will enjoy.
