This five book series was so fun to read. The author, Sydney Taylor, did a wonderful job pulling you into the world of the adventurous young family. From the back cover of the first book:
“Meet the All-of-A-Kind Family — Ella, Henny, Sarah, Charlotte, and Gertie — who live with their parents in New York City at the turn of the century.
Together they share adventures that find them searching for hidden buttons while dusting Mama’s front parlor and visiting with the peddlers in Papa’s shop on rainy days. The girls enjoy doing everything together, especially when it involves holidays and surprises.
But no one could have prepared them for the biggest surprise of all!”
