I love this series, it's very sweet! It stars a Jewish family of six children - Ella, Henny, Sarah, Charlotte, Gertie and Charlie - living in New York at the very beginning of last century. The books are just about the children and the good, bad, funny or sad times they go through. There are five books in the series (All of a Kind Family, All of a kind Family Downtown, More all of a Kind Family, All of a kind Family Uptown and Ella of all of a Kind Family) and I think this one of the best. Light and very enjoyable reading!
