Quotes & Awards

  • “Suzanne Toren, the narrator of the previous audiobooks, demonstrates her acting ability again as she imbues each of the sisters with unique voices. A master of age and accent, Toren moves flawlessly between generations and ethnic backgrounds. Fans of the series will be happy to settle with this audiobook, while those who are meeting the All-of-a-Kind Family for the first time will soon feel right at home.”

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Miriam | 12/10/2013

    " Another very charming book. I still am not overly fond of some of the stereotypes, but there are a lot of interesting religious details and other points that could be discussed with children. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Ashley | 9/26/2013

    " I rated this book so high largely for the sake of nostalgia. I remember reading this book (well actually the whole series) more than once as a child and being fascinated by a family full of five girls...just like mine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Liz Livingston | 9/16/2013

    " More of the same, just as enjoyable, as the first book in this 1950's series about the early 1900's Jewish family in NY. Particularly interesting to read with my girls (elementary age) with regards to an epidemic that their family deals with indirectly. Good historical fiction for this age group. "

    " A wonderful book. Not as good as the first in the series but sometimes it is hard to see beloved characters grow and change "
