Recommended for: Everyone with little girls

Of all the books I have fond memories of reading (or having them read to me) as a child-I am most fond of this one. It is the incredibly endearing set of stories about a little Jewish family with 5 girls growing up poor but happy in the East Side of New York. I just read it to Samantha and she loved it as well. I read it so many times as a girl that I still think of some stories on a regular basis-Sarah having to eat the soup before she could having anything else-the lost library book-buying crackers at the penny store-mama figuring out how to get her girls to dust! I love this book.

Emily I was the one reading this book to Emily--way back when. I love this book!!! To anyone with little children, especially girls, you'll love it! Perfect chapter-book for children old enough to listen for an entire chapter. We're reading it right now to Olivia. I actually cried listening to Emily read it to Samantha, it brought back two sets of warm memories: both when I read it as a child and again to my daughters.I just ordered two more and gave my falling-apart copy to Emily (sorry Em!)
