2014 book 246

Sydney Taylor's More All-of-a-Kind Family
Still making my way through this delightful series about early 1900s Jewish life--seriously, these books are SO Jewy, I am amazed they were ever published. In this one, there's a trip to the beach (to avoid polio or some similar disease), a wedding, and the family moves from the lower East Side to the Bronx! They also attend a Reform synagogue for the first time (their father is horrified that it's all in English and the rabbi doesn't even have a beard. Hilarious).
