It's the turn of the 20th century in New York's Lower East Side and sense of adventure and excitement abounds for five yong sisters - Ella, Henny, Sarah, Charlotte and Gertie.
Follow along as they search for hidden buttons while dusting Mama's front parlor, or explore the basement warehouse of Papa's peddler's shop on rainy days. The five 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!
