All-of-a-Kind Family begins at the turn of the century in New York’s Lower East side. A sense of excitement abounds for five young sisters.
Meet Ella, Henny, Sarah, Charlotte, and Gertie – who live with their parents in New York City.
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!
