About the Author
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.

The story is about a large Jewish family in America around the end of the 19th/start of the 20th century. It follows the fortunes of all the children, from the baby to the teenager, and all the customs and traditions of Jewish life. Gripping from beginning to end.This book will appeal to many different age groups, and would be lovely to read as well as have someone read it to you.
So many Jewish books for children are about the Holocaust or Eastern European Pogroms, or modern day stories. I'm looking forward to re-reading it now and I'm sure my children will enjoy it - I'll keep the website posted!
