You know I am obsessed.

All-of-a-Kind Family Walking Tour

Sundays, July 10, 17, 24 & 31 and August 7, 14, 21, & 28 @ 1pm

Explore childhood turn-of-the-century style on our walking tour geared to children ages 5-12 and their families/caretakers. Follow in the footsteps of Ella, Henny, Sarah, Charlotte, and Gertie, the beloved sisters depicted in Sydney Taylor’s children’s classic All-of-a-Kind Family. Take to the streets on this neighborhood walking tour and discover where these immigrant girls lived, shopped, prayed, played and went to school. Admission is $15 per family. Part of the Preservation Detectives series at the Museum at Eldridge Street. For more information, email sverity@eldridgestreet.org or call 212.219.0302 x5.

OMG!!!!!!! Is it crazy to think that I can make it to one of the tours in August just a few weeks after moving to the East Coast??? I can’t imagine missing this opportunity. And we are just finishing the first book. (Together, that is; I’ve been an AOTKF fan for more than 3 decades!)

Call the museum. The calendar only goes thru August (and the site design is terrible) but I bet they’ll still be doing the tours in September and October. Don’t make yourself nuts! xoxo

Frume Sarah’s sister here. Thanks so much for the heads up. Wanted to let you know that your link to the museum should link to http://www.eldridgestreet.org/. Right now it is going to some strange unrelated sight.

Fixed! Thanks, Ms Pep.
