Frequently bought together
"Wolff has constructed a sweet, nostalgic vignette of early-20th-century immigrant New York City, alluding to the difficulties but stressing the goodness. Rachel and her family, friends, and neighbors are not anachronisms or caricatures but are entirely accessible to modern readers. Lucas' lovely black-and-white drawings, reminiscent of Helen John's in Sydney Taylor's All of a Kind Family (1951), are perfectly in sync with the spirit of the text. Hope, love, determination, and kindness abound."—Kirkus Reviews
"A gentle and accessible slice of historical fiction to give to readers moving on from chapter books, or to offer as a gentle read-aloud for younger children."—School Library Journal
About the Author
Margeaux Lucas began drawing at age four and never stopped. She lives in Brooklyn, New York, where easy access to the enormous historical riches of Manhattan's Lower East Side allowed her to truly immerse herself in her illustration research for this story.

As Rachel’s story unfolds, Ms. Wolff helps us to empathize with Rachel when her desire for something she can call her own is at odds with the family values she has absorbed from her warm and loving parents. While describing how she resolves this universal conflict of sibling rivalry, a subtle message is revealed, one that can help children as they struggle with that same issue. This book screams for a chance to read it with a young reader and begin that conversation.
