Book of the Week! All Of A Kind Family by Sydney Taylor

This book is the first in a series of truly adorable books.  It chronicles the daily life of a young Jewish family living in New York at the beginning of the 20th century.
It's a chapter book that I'm guessing is on a reading level of about second grade.  It has been a great first chapter book for us, although when we tried to start the third book in the series Babs started crying and kept saying, over and over again, "no more all of a kind family".  From what I can tell she enjoyed the stories but was more disappointed in the lack of pictures that I had previously realized. 

Although some children's books can be a bit mind numbing, I really enjoy these stories and have to keep myself from reading ahead.  And they're not allowed to be read if Mommy isn't home for story time.  I have enjoyed them that much.  I'm sure Babs has too in her own little way.

I loved that series when I was a kid. I kind of forgot about them. I'll have to remember them for Fi. Definitely a classic every kid should read.
