From Library Staff

A lot of time has passed since the original publication of this book back in 1951, but one thing stays the same. When the five sisters featured in these stories take a trip to the library, where do they go? Why, the Seward Park Branch, of course!

*Good story for multi-cultural studies on the Jewish faith and lifestyle. *Very educational and informative about family and the faith of the family. Here is a quote from the book that is worth noting: "It means we're all close and loving and loyal - and our family will always be that." This is a quote that would be a great motto for every family and assist with making the nation strong. :) :) **Really valuable reading.

**spoiler alert** How can I not love a book where the romantic heroine is a librarian! This was also one of the books that introduced me to Judaism as a child, the rare book depicting Jewish life in the early 20th century in a generally upbeat way. Each of the 5 sisters is lovable, with a distinct personality, but shy, bookish Sarah was always my favorite.
