Publisher's Summary

It's the turn of the 20th century in New York's Lower East Side and a sense of adventure and excitement abounds for five young sisters - Ella, Henny, Sarah, Charlotte and Gertie. Follow along as they search for hidden buttons while dusting Mama's front parlor, or explore the basement warehouse of Papa's peddler's shop on rainy days. The five 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!

Great Family Read Aloud

I loved this series growing up, and I have enjoyed sharing it with my children (girl, 9 and boy, 7)! However, I have really enjoyed having the audible version this time around! The reader does an excellent job of voicing the characters so that you remember that many of them are immigrants!

This was a sweet, wholesome story that my five year old daughter and I both enjoyed! It is a story about simple things like lost library books, family celebrations, eating soup, and going to the beach. It held our attention to the point where the story had to be paused if one of us needed to leave the room.
